"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, and Roberts-Mitchell Funeral Home.   Collected glasses are brought to Lens Crafters (a regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling 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.  625 eyeglasses were collected this 2015-16 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.


“A Good Time for a Good Cause”

The Medfield Lions Club with support from the Medfield Neighbor Brigade will host an evening spring gala on Saturday, May 13th 7:30pm – 10pm at the Zullo Gallery on Main Street.
This 4th annual event is to raise funds which will be used to help Medfield families going through significant tragedy, medical adversity or hardship.
The Medfield Neighbor Brigade is a network of volunteers that supports Medfield families going through a temporary crisis by supplying meals, rides and performing household chores.  
For the past 4 years, the Medfield Lions Club has partnered with the Medfield Neighbor Brigade to support these families with gift card care packages made possible by this fundraiser and the generosity of the Medfield community.
The event will feature 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.
