Improving sight is one the Lions Club’s most defining causes which goes back to Hellen Keller in 1925 (You can learn more about the Lions Club’s mission here). As a club, we help to fulfill this mission by collecting and recycling unused eyeglasses, screening children for eye conditions, and offering financial support for members of the Kittery and York communities to purchase eyeglasses.
