Just a few of the many projects of the Redwood Shores Lions Club:

Eyeglass Collection

Throughout the year,used eyeglasses are collected by the Redwood Shores Lions and submitted to the Lions In Sight program. The collected eyeglasses are sorted, cleaned, processed and packaged for delivery to developing nations around the world. As we do this, we truly give the gift of sight to those who cannot afford something as simple as eyeglasses. 
Remember, if you have any old eyeglasses and would like to contribute them, please look for our eyeglass collection box at the Sandpiper Community Center or at Borel Eye Doctors in San Mateo.

Ear of the Lion

The Redwood Shores Lions Club is a member of the Hearing Foundation of California/Nevada, Inc.  The foundation offers hearing aids and medical/surgical/audiological services to the needy.  If you are in need of hearing aid services, please contact us at

Also, if you have a used hearing aid, please drop it off at our collection box at the Sandpiper Community Center in Redwood Shores.
