The Lions Club of San Martin continued its support for the local community and disaster preparedness when, for the second year, the club donated funds to the South County Airport Pilots Association Disaster Airlift Response Team (SCAPA DART), a local charity dedicated to philanthropy.

“The San Martin Lions Club appreciates the role SCAPA DART plays in the community for disaster relief. We would also like to be involved in the next Disaster training with hands on support and the use of our Hall,” said Jane Stevens, President of the Lions Club of San Martin.

“SCAPA greatly appreciates the financial support given by the San Martin Lions Club to our Disaster Airlift Response Team program. This donation will help us continue our efforts to serve the local community by utilizing the San Martin Airport and pilot community resources during local emergencies” said SCAPA President Mike Brogley.

SCAPA DART stands ready to provide volunteer emergency airlift services to aid local communities’ disaster response after a cataclysmic event which impairs regional surface transportation.

SCAPA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation organized as a sub-chapter of the California Pilots Association (CalPilots). SCAPA's mission is to preserve the San Martin Airport, improve community relations, enhance flying safety, support local young people entering aviation as a vocation through scholarships, and maintaining disaster preparedness. The SCAPA web site is www.southcountypilots.org.

The mission of the Lions Club of San Martin is to create and foster a spirit of understanding among the peoples of the world; to promote the principles of good citizenship; and to take an active interest in the civic, cultural, social and moral welfare of the community.
