We will be working on completeing the "Safety Bucket" project for Westlake Schools once the pandemic slows. Started in March of 2015, we were able to provide 270 Safety Buckets for both the North Olmsted and Westlake public schools. We have 25 more for Westlake which we hope to distribute this Fall, 2021. 

We have a CCTV low vision reader system to donate to Brookdale Westlake Village once the pandemic subsides.

The Club supports the Mission of the Lions, e.g. collecting used eyeglasses and hearing aids. We provide assistance to financially restricted members of the Community to obtain eye glasses, eye exams, and cataract surgery through the Lions Eye Program located inside St. Vincent’s Charity Hospital, as well as hearing aids through the Lions Hearing Aid Bank. Used eyeglasses and hearing aid items can be dropped off at one of our following eyeglasses collection boxes located in the Westlake Porter Library, Westlake Recreation Center, Westlake Police Department and the North Olmsted Senior Center.
