Lions Donate $1000 for Vision Programs

Posted on July 9, 2020

Fairfax Lions Club received a thank you note for our recent $1000 donation to Virginia Lions Eye Institute Foundation (VLEIF).

This donation supports:

  1. The INOVA Lions Eye Clinic in Fairfax Hospital: it performs 4200 examinations and 250 free eye surgeries in a typical year.
  2. Joe Lipomi Memorial Scholastic Grants: in 2018, Scholastic Grants totaling $60,000 went to 23 visually challenged students.
  3. The Low Vision Learning Center in Alexandria,VA: it serves individuals with chronic vision loss, that cannot be improved with conventional glasses or contact lenses. VLEIF provides equipment to examine patients, and visual aids for rehabilitation.

The donation helps those in need in our community, and it is possible only because our community supports our Lions Club charity fund raisers. You have enabled our service mission for 70 years; we thank you!
