The Zion Township Lions Club has adopted Eyesight and Hearing preservation as the primary focus of our charitable giving. Although the club supports many charities and assists community organizations in many ways, Eyesight and Hearing preservation requests receive preferential consideration for the club’s effort and resources.

Eyesight assistance takes many forms from cataract surgery for the elderly to eyeglasses for seniors and youngsters whose families cannot afford the prescription glasses themselves.

Hearing Assistance includes testing, and where required the purchase and fitting of hearing aids through the Lions Of Illinois Foundation..

The less privileged are referred to the club by social service organizations and physicians. Many times they contact the Lions Club on their own behalf. Each request is carefully considered, and if approved, the applicant will be referred to professionals that participate with the Lions Clubs in the area of the applicants needs and funds are quietly made available directly to the recipient’s physician or health care organization.

The Zion Township Lions Club also collects used eyeglasses and hearing aids and recycles them into service for the needy
