Vision and Hearing
We serve to prevent avoidable blindness and improve quality of life for people who are blind and visually impaired. The Town Center Blind Lions Club collects eyeglasses and hearing aids for distribution around the community. We conduct eye and ear screenings for free in the Lions Mobile Sight and Hearing Van and partner with local eye doctors to provide low cost eye exams, eyeglasses, and even surgeries to eligible residents. Our club is unique in that about half of our members are visually impaired, which gives us insight into the needs of this population.
The Town Center Blind Lions Club works in food pantries and with Stand Up for Kids to help those who are in need of food. Parts of Hampton Roads have extremely high rates of food insecurity and don’t know where their next nutritious meal is coming from. Our club is taking a stand to end this vicious cycle of uncertainty. We serve to ensure all community members have access to nutritious foods.
The Town Center Blind Lions Club is passionate about recycling! From bottle caps and pull tabs, to egg cartons, to eyeglasses and grocery bags, we care about our environment. Our club also runs 4th Grade Foresters where we provide trees for 4th grade students to plant. We serve to sustainably protect and restore our environment to improve the well-being of all communities. We’ve seen how our stewardship of natural resources can improve quality of life and increase engagement in Hampton Roads. We will continue to work for the health of our planet.
The Town Center Blind Lions Club seeks to educate the public about diabetes and reduce the prevalence of the disease. Diabetes is a global epidemic expected to affect over 600 million adults by 2045. Other serious diseases can stem from diabetes that affect the heart and blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, nerves and teeth. Our Lions aim to restore the health of the community.
The Town Center Blind Lions Club works with The Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters by raising money through lemonade stands every year. The donations go towards fighting childhood cancer. The next generation’s ability to thrive is closely tied to the supports of the local community. Lions have seen and felt the effects of cancer on children and their families, and continue to bring hope through tangible service and support. We aim to finally put an end to this horrible disease.
