The Salmon Creek Lions Club has long been a committed financial supporter of and an active participant in the work of the Clark County Lions Sight Foundation and the Clark County Lions Hearing Committee. In addition, Salmon Creek Lions member, Dr. Jan Hurtubise, has facilitated the collection and re-use of thousands of used eyeglasses .
 
Our mission:
To serve the humanitarian needs of our local and worldwide communities through voluntary service.
 
Priorities of the Salmon Creek Lions Club and Foundation are to assist persons who are blind or visually-impaired, as well as those challenged by hearing loss. Locally, our efforts primarily have been directed to funding the Clark County Lions’ Foundations for Sight and for Hearing which, in turn, subsidize examinations, eye glasses, hearing aids and surgical procedures.

We have recently begun an outreach program to test people of all ages for vision difficulties. Our screening program uses portable test equipment that is able to measure the need for further testing by trained professionals. When a person requires further examination, but does not have insurance coverage, we provide an application form to enable them to seek financial aid with the Lions Sight Foundation of Clark County.

Current Organizational Needs: We seek funding to purchase at least one handheld vision-screening unit ($7,000 approximate cost for each unit) and a mobile tented enclosure ($1,000 approximate cost) to enable screening in unfavorable light conditions.
