The Bloomfield Lions Club affirms and unites with the “Black Lives Matter” movement, to express our sadness, disappointment, and genuine disgust over the horrendous actions against the black community. The take-away from the catalyst to this protest, George Floyd’s untimely death, is to rally and unite with the world’s outcry for justice and reform of the many systems that continue to act against the black community.  Within our Club we want to acknowledge, respect, and vigorously work for the reforms that will make change real, by recognizing that meaningful change starts with us. We yearn for healing and substantive reform and offer our commitment to be part of the solution, as we address injustice when it occurs within the black community as well as others.

Bloomfield Lions Club Fills Eyeglass Cases for Homeless Shelters

On Tuesday evening, January 25th, members of the Bloomfield Lions Club, along with volunteer employees of the Windsor-based CINTAS Corporation, will gather at the local headquarters of our partner corporation for the second round 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 900 cases. This fall, the count was 1100 but due to the tremendous generosity of neighboring Lion clubs in supplying the hard eyeglass cases and CINTAS, we have scheduled the second date 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.
