Ongoing Community Service Projects

Used Cell Phone Recycling
The Mayfair Lions are currently collecting old cell phones. These phones are turned into an organization that refurbishes them and donates them to women living in local shelters, giving the women a quick way to call for help in an emergency.

Used Printer Ink Cartridges for Recycling
The Mayfair Lions are currently collecting used printer ink cartridges for an environmental service project. The used cartridges are then recycled, saving valuable space in our landfills.

Contact Mayfair Lions Secretary Judy Toft at 773.763.0662 or e-mail her at to donate a phone or ink cartridge or for more information.
