Club Projects


The Carlisle Lions Club has handmade Amish Brooms from Lancaster County for sale.  Can be purchased from a Lion or from The Fabric Center, 41 W Ponfret St, Carlisle, PA 17013.


The Carlisle Lions Club sales mints with the Lions logo at multiple locations.  If you know of a good place to place mints that come in three flavors, then talk to the Mint chairperson.


Eyeglass collection:


The Carlisle Lions club has multiple locations where people can drop old and used eyeglasses that are collected to be reused for those that cannot afford to purchase eyeglasses.


Vision Screening:

Vision screening for children helps identify those who may have vision problems requiring comprehensive follow-up by a professional eye care provider.


Eyeglass Purchase Program:

The Carlisle Lions club pays for eye exams and then pays for a pair of glasses for those that cannot afford them.  We are currently working with the Carlisle Area School District to support the needs of school children.

Anyone wishing to donate used eyeglasses can do so by contacting any Carlisle Lions Club member or drop them at the locations listed below.
