PALM COAST LIONS CHARITIES
Palm Coast Lions Need Your Help
in order to continue our programs that help the Blind & Visually Impaired.
Can you spare a couple of hours a week or a Saturday morning once a month to help those less fortunate?
Here are some of the activities that we need your help with:
Would you like to join our team of vision or diabetes screeners
1. Each Fall the PC Lions help the elementary school nurses perform vision and hearing screening on all the elementary school children in the county.
2. Preschool & Kindergarten vision screening program - Did you know that 1out of 4 children have a vision problem and most can be corrected with early detection and treatment. This program utilizes our Pedia-Vision Screening System to detect potential vision problems so that treatment can begin early.
3. Diabetes screener - Did you know that diabetes is one of the leading causes of blindness. On the 3rd Thursday of each month the PC Lions perform diabetes and glaucoma screening at the Florida Hospital-Flagler. Additional screenings are performed throughout the year.
Sight Conservation Team -
Each year the Palm Coast Lions Club receives many applications for assistance with obtaining eye examinations and eye glasses from those who cannot afford these items. In addition, the sight conservation team helps those who need assistance locating providers for eye surgery.
Become a member of this very important team.
Help with our recycling programs-
1. The PC Lions recycle approximately 200 eyeglasses/ month, in addition to hearing aids.
Recycling containers can be found at the Flagler County Public Library in Palm Coast and Flagler Beach and some Publix super-markets. These eyeglasses are boxed each month and delivered to Daytona on their way to refurbishing.
2. Paper/Aluminum can recycling - Recycling containers are located at Publix on the corner of Palm Coast Parkway and Belle Terre, as well as, in the Palm Harbor Shopping Center. The PC Lions also conduct a monthly paper drive on the last Saturday of the month, picking up papers along various routes throughout the city. Drivers and helpers always needed.
3. In addition, we recycle printer cartridges and cell phones.
Volunteer at the Talking Books Library in Daytona
The Bureau of Braille and Talking Book Library Services serves more than 39,000 Florida residents who cannot use standard print reading materials as the result of a visual, physical, or reading disability. It is the largest library of its kind in the U.S., with a collection of more than 2.4 million items in Braille on cassette or digital, and annual loans exceeding 1.6 million items. Some of the Palm Coast Lions volunteer at the library one morning a week, mailing out the books, restocking the shelves and rewinding the cassettes.
Serve as an advisor for one of our Leos Clubs
The Palm Coast Lions Club sponsors Leos Clubs at both the Flagler/Palm Coast and Matanzas High Schools. Leadership-Experience-Opportunity are just a few of the rewards that young
people gains from participating in Leos. Leo clubs are a place to have fun and grow while
experiencing the benefits of community service.
