Lions around the world are focusing their efforts on four campaigns as they celebrate their 100th Anniversary in July 2017.
Their goal is to serve 100 million people in sharing the vision, engaging our youth, relieving the hunger, and protecting our environment. As of July 2015, they have served 42 Million.
The Georgia Lions Lighthouse for the blind handles eye exams, eyeglasses and coordinates eye surgeries — hundreds in our district alone. The free eye surgeries are supported by the Lions White Cane donations and are for those who cannot pay. Of course, we cannot forget our eye surgeons who give of their time and expertise. Lions welcome any donations at any time for the White Cane fund! In addition to collecting unused eyeglasses, Lions collect hearing aids and cell phones. Covington Lions will be collecting for their White Cane fund at the Covington Lions Christmas Parade on Saturday, Dec. 5, at 10 a.m.
