2019 Holiday Collection!

While the holiday season brings good tidings for many, for children residing in shelters, the holiday season can be particularly challenging. The Briarwood/Kew Gardens Lions Club is collecting New toys, books, and/or hats/gloves/scarves for the Department of Education in conjunction with the Department of Homeless Services. Items will be delivered to children living in shelters throughout NYC for the holidays. The collection box is set up at the TD20 precinct in the Briarwood subway. We hope you'll stop by and add a new item!

Saying Thanks to Heroes

The Briarwood/Kew Gardens Lions Club partners with Operation Gratitude to host “Say Thank You” letter writing sessions for our deployed troops, new recruits, veterans, first responders and caretakers. It is amazing seeing the community: youths and people of all walks of life, Lion club members who in turn enlisted their co-workers to get involved. Operation Gratitude says “Care Package recipients tell us these letters, notes, and drawings are the most cherished items in their box.”

Eyeglass Collection

The Briarwood/Kew Gardens Lions Club regularly collects eyeglasses, new or used, to be cleaned, sorted, and prepared to dispense, free of charge, to children and adults in need. Email us at if you have a few pairs you’d like to donate!
