The Geneva Lions ask you to “Unlock Your Heart”

Sep 22, 2016 09:11AM ● Published by Neighbors Magazines

Rob Livingston, General Manager of Ace Hardware on State Street in Geneva, accepts a Lions’ “Unlock Your Heart” donation bucket from Lion Bill Minderman.

The Geneva Lions Club, serving Geneva and St. Charles, has recently launched an additional recycling program to collect brass, steel, tin and aluminum keys in an effort to raise funds to support services to the hearing and visually impaired in Illinois. Donation buckets will be located at various Geneva and St. Charles businesses and schools.

The Geneva Lions and other Lions’ Clubs have long been known for their efforts in collecting and recycling used eyeglasses, however the recycling program also includes collection of keys, cell phones, ink cartridges and hearing aids. Donations are collected and sorted by club members and volunteers and are delivered to the Lions of Illinois Foundation. Funds raised are used by the Foundation to support programs such as the Infant Vision Screening and Infant Hearing Screening programs.

To learn more about the Geneva Lions Club, their local service work, and the organizations they support through local fund-raising efforts, visit genevalionsclub.org or join the Lions for lunch almost every Monday, 12pm at Aurelio’s Pizza in downtown Geneva. The full schedule of meetings and featured speakers is available on their website.
