Geneva Lions Club: more than meets the eye

May 13, 2016 10:28AM ● Published by Neighbors Magazines

The Geneva Lions Club recently delivered approximately 2,500 eyeglasses, 350 ink cartridges, 54 cell phones, 17 pounds of Christmas lighting wire, and one pound of aluminum tabs to the Lions International Collection Center in Sycamore, IL. The Geneva Lions Club collects nearly 10,000 eyeglasses from collection sites throughout Geneva and St. Charles each year. See their website, genevalionsclub.org for specific locations. The eyeglasses, and other items, are then recycled for distribution to those in need in third world countries.

In addition, the Geneva Lions Club actively works to fulfill their mission to meet the sight and hearing needs of those in need in both Geneva and St. Charles. Funds raised support Geneva and St. Charles organizations and scholarships including Lazarus House, Carroll Towers, and the TriCity Health Partnership. Working with the Vision Center located in the St. Charles Walmart Supercenter, the Geneva Lions Club covers the cost of eye exams and eyeglasses for applicants and referrals in need.
