"Recycle for Sight" - Eyeglasses Collections - ongoing

The Medfield Lions Club collects eyeglasses of every sort: prescription & reading, clear & sunglass, adult & children's.  Collection boxes are placed throughout Town: Blue Moon Bagel Cafe, Shaw's service desk, Medfield Public Library reference room, Medfield Eye Care, Medfield Eye Associates, Medfield Senior Center, Needham Bank, and Roberts Mitchell Caruso Funeral Home.  

Collected glasses are brought to a District center whose volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength, and package the glasses for distribution for people in need in low and middle income communities in the US and abroad, where they will have the greatest impact.  1,500 eyeglasses were collected this 2021-22 Lionistic year.  Much thanks to all who have donated through the years, and have made an impact in others' lives.

Through Lions International volunteers and eye care professionals screen thousands of children and adults during sight missions, providing them - free of charge - with prescription lenses, frames, and ultimately a better quality of life.  Lions International also provides recycled glasses to nonprofit organizations focused on eye care, as well as to optometry college groups, religious organizations, and military assistance groups, which also distribute to people in need.

Lions Spring Gala

The Medfield Lions Club in cooperation with the Medfield Helping Hands annually host a fundraiser filled with fun called the "Spring Gala".

This evening of fun raises funds which are used to help Medfield families going through temporary crisis, significant tragedy, medical adversity or hardship.
The Medfield Lions Club has held this event for the past few years to help support these families with gift card care packages made possible by this fundraiser and the generosity of the Medfield community.  We have also made cash donations directly to families  in need.

The event features Medfield musicians, appetizers, a wine and beer bar, raffles and prizes.  Please join us for this extremely worthwhile event to help Medfield friends and neighbors during their time of need.

This year's date for the Spring Gala has not been set yet.
