Hurricane Harvey victim in Dayton gets financial boost from Lions Club

Marjorie Fox accepts a $3,500 donation from the Dayton Lions Club. Representing the Lions Club is Dr. James Gracey.

While Hurricane Harvey is a distant and fading memory for many residents in Liberty County, some are still dealing with the aftermath of the storm. When the hurricane pushed through Southeast Texas in August 2017, causing historic flooding, Marjorie Fox saw two feet of water rise inside her home on Ladd St. in Dayton.

For a year, she was forced out of her home while repairs were made. Most were covered by insurance but she still lost a chunk of her savings in deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses.

To help her recover, the Dayton Lions Club on April 12 made a $3,500 donation to Fox. The money came to the Lions Club through FEMA programs. Dr. James Gracey made the check presentation to Fox at her home.

Gracey, a resident of Dayton, is a member of the Crosby Lions Club but said that credit for the donation to Fox should go to the Dayton Lions Club.
