Gift of Sight Day
For many years, California Lions Clubs and Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation have sponsored dozens of “Gift of Sight” events throughout Southern California.
At these one day events, free vision screenings are provided by volunteer Ophthalmologists and Optometrists to all comers, regardless of need or income. In addition, each person is provided with a free pair of refurbished eyeglasses on the spot, based on the results of the eye exam. At the Encinitas event a free Hearing Screening is also available. All equipment and supplies have been provided by generous donors.
Typically, several hundred people are seen at each of these events, and the majority leaves with glasses at no cost. Since Medi-Cal does not provide glasses, the need is greater than ever.
As you can imagine, it takes nearly 100 volunteers on site for each event, and it’s a long, busy day!
How can you help? We are in need of some food donations to feed these dedicated volunteers’ breakfast and lunch (finger foods are best.).
Can you help to support this life changing program with a donation of food and beverages for our volunteers?
