Priorities of the Salmon Creek Lions Club and Foundation are to assist persons who are blind or visually-impaired, as well as those challenged by hearing loss. Locally, our efforts primarily have been directed to funding the Lions’ Foundations for Sight and for Hearing which, in turn, subsidize examinations, eye glasses, hearing aids and surgical procedures.
In 2015 we began an outreach program to test people of all ages for vision difficulties. Our screening program uses portable state of the art test equipment that is able to measure the need for further testing by trained professionals. When a person requires further examination, but does not have insurance coverage, we provide an application form to enable them to seek financial aid from the Lions Sight Foundation of Clark County.
