It is not necessary to be a Lion to help us out in this rewarding project.
Last year the Sun Lakes Lions cleaned, sorted, and read over 50,000 pair of glasses that were distributed worldwide by ALERT to persons in need. If you can spare one and one-half hours to help us, come and join us for a fun event on Thursday, September 10.
For more information you can call us at 480-242-4356.
“The little girl was fitted for glasses and on the drive home, she asked her mom, ‘What are those big round things?’ When her mom figured out her daughter was referring to trees with leaves, she said she started to cry. She had no idea her little girl was not seeing these things.”
