Last week, we mentioned that we attended the District 27-B2 Convention in Green Bay. During the convention, members gave an exciting announcement. District 27-B2 will be receiving a $37,474 grant from the Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) to purchase Spot vision screening cameras. It is estimated that approximately 15,000 children will benefit from this service.
Children’s vision screening is a program close to the hearts of many at Lions Pride and the Wisconsin Lions Foundation. Throughout the years, we have learned that nearly 80 percent of a child’s learning is related to sight. That’s why the Wisconsin Lions Foundation has teamed up with Prevent Blindness Wisconsin to certify lions and lionesses all across the state for vision screening. Once certified, many clubs sponsor and conduct vision screenings locally. The goal of the WLF Children’s Screening project is to ensure that children anywhere from six months to teens have had a vision screening.
This is a great reminder to all Lions Pride donors that your support helps Lions provide services to many children and adults in the state of Wisconsin. Lions Pride Endowment Fund is helping preserve, protect and provide for all Wisconsin Lions Foundation projects today and for generations to come. We thank you for your continued support.
Congratulations to District 27-B2!
