     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. 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.
3. In addition, we recycle printer cartridges and cell phones.

experiencing the benefits of community service.

Each year's contest consists of an original theme incorporating peace. Participants use a variety of mediums, including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint, to express the theme.
