Lions Club reaches out to community

October 1, 2016 by  

The Lions Club in Casa Grande is reaching out to the community, asking others to become involved in the work it does.

Among other activities, the club collects used cellphones, hearing aids, and eyeglasses, which it then recycles. It provides school supplies to the Casa Grande Elementary School District, and also collects nonperishable foodstuffs for the city’s food bank.

Once a month, the club provides free visions screenings at the Stanfield Medical Clinic. In a press release, the Lions said their latest project is to provide free vision screenings for school-age children. Thus far, screenings have been provided to students at Villa Oasis High School, as well as the Mary C. O’Brien Elementary School. The Lions intend to keep providing the screenings on an as-needed basis.

It is not necessary to join the club to help out, according to the Lions. They say they can use everyone’s experience and talent.

The Lions meet on the first and third Thursdays of each month, with the next upcoming meeting scheduled for 6:00 pm on October 6, 2016. Interested parties can stop by and learn about the club and the ways in which it serves Casa Grande. The meets are held at American Legion Post 8 on Park Avenue.

Organizations like these can benefit by working with flyer printing companies, which can create informative sheets for area-wide mailings.
