Bloomfield Lions Club Fills Eyeglass Cases for Homeless Shelters

On Friday evening, October 11th, members of the Bloomfield Lions Club, along with fifteen Windsor-based CINTAS Corporation employees, gathered at the local headquarters of our partner corporation to fill hard eyeglass cases with first-aid and personal care items for distribution to over a dozen area homeless shelters.

Last year’s project filled over 19=000 cases. This year, the count was 1100 but due to the tremendous generosity of neighboring Lion clubs in supplying the hard eyeglass cases and CINTAS, we will schedule a date in late winter to fill 1100 + more cases for distribution.

Each was filled with band-aids, alcohol wipes, towelettes, cough drops, tweezers, first-aid cream and related items. All of the first-aid products were supplied through the generosity of CINTAS Corporation.

Bloomfield Lions Club President Constanza Paramo said, “Building off of last years’ success and utilizing eyeglass cases from eyeglass donations, the Bloomfield Lions will distribute the first aid kits to approximately 16 shelters. Addressing the needs of the community in such a meaningful way is what makes volunteers want to come back to help. It is serving the community at its best.”

CINTAS leads the industry in supplying corporate identity uniform programs, providing entrance and logo mats, restroom supplies, promotional products, first aid, safety, fire protection products and services and industrial carpet and tile cleaning. They operate more than 400 facilities in North America, including six manufacturing plants and eight distribution centers, according to their website. This is their 3rd year partnering with this Lions Club project.
