Eyeglass Collectors 
Attention Eyeglass Collectors
 
Denver Lions are collecting thousands of used eyeglasses. We have limited space in the new Club office.  To help keep the office orderly, we need your help.
  • Separate the cases from the glasses.  Toss out the case as the processing center cannot use them.
  • Take the eyeglasses out of bags and put them in the plastic tubs. 
You may consider writing on the boxes, “Eyeglasses only  .. no cases.”
 
We want to give recognition in the Roarings and social media for the donation box locations.  Please send pictures of location and people to Fletcher Brown  text to  303.619.8486
 
Thank you.
Lion David Lambert.

Needed - Dragon Boat Team Captains
We are registering the Denver Lions race team for the Dragon Boat Festival 2020.  In 2018 we had a winning team and want to repeat.  The Festival is being held July 25-26, 2020 at Sloan’s Lake.  We need two team captains.  For details of being a captain please contact Lion Fletcher  brownsinco@gmail.com  303.619.8486
KidSight Update
KidSight Screening
Thank you to our clubs and KidSight Colorado volunteers who have been busy with screening! 36,350 children have been screened and 3,583 children referred, a 9.8% rate of referral. Our district has screened 16,261 children and 1,865 children have been referred due to detection of a vision problem (11.5%).
Colorado Gives Day was Huge!
The Colorado Lions KidSight Program had a big day on December 10! Thank you to all who donated to us on Colorado Gives Day. Thanks to you and a double match from an anonymous donor we raised more than $14,000! We are so grateful for all the support you provide and we couldn’t do this without you!
Thank You 6C Lions Clubs
We would like to extend a very special thank you to those clubs in 6C who have donated to KidSight so far this year. Your donations benefit the children of Colorado through vision screening and referral for those identified with a vision problem. We appreciate the support of each and every club in 6C, both volunteer and financial.  The Denver Lions Foundations supports KidSight
Road Trip to Sterling CO
Volunteers are needed! Lions have done such a great job collecting glasses that we need volunteers to transport them to the Sterling Club for sorting and distribution. We need Lions to rent a trailer, pick up glasses at the shed in Golden and at the Denver Den office, drive them up to Sterling. This can be done at your convenience and there is no cost to Lions other than your time. The Used Eyeglass Program will pick up the cost of the trailer. Doesn’t a road trip sound like fun? If you are interested in helping please contact Fletcher Brown at brownsinco@gmail.com or 303-619-8486.
Used eyeglass collection - Mayfair Vision
Thanks Mayfair Vision Clinic for being a collection location for used eyeglasses. Lions collect used eyeglasses.  They are taken to facilities where they are cleaned and the prescriptions are read.  They are then made available for mission trips going to other countries where eyesight care is lacking. You can find eyeglass collection boxes at just about any optical store and many medical facilities.  In addition, many churches and other locations participate in the program.  Go to www.denverlions.org for Recycle for Sight collection locations.
