Lions in Sight…

Well here we are again…sorting through the used eyeglasses we collect in our 12 collection places throughout the cities of Fairfield and Suisun.   We will sort, count and box them up and take them to the Vallejo eyeglass Warehouse.  From there they will again be sorted and will then be on their way on a clinic trip to Mexico or another country.  Lions in Sight has been an MD-4 project since 1991.  It’s objectives are to collect these eyeglasses and conduct clinic trips to developing nations to give eye examinations and prescribe recycled eyeglasses to those in need free of charge.  They also provide used eyeglasses to Lions Clubs worldwide and ensure the eyeglasses are appropriately prescribed and distributed.    We collect these glasses year round and have a couple of eyeglass sorting days each year.   Just another service of the Fairfield F.a.S.T. Lions

Kases for Kids...

The Fairfield F.a.S.T. Lions participate in the Kases for Kids program year round.

Thousands of children every day are removed from their homes because their care provider can't or won't take care of them. When they are removed, their things are thrown into plastic trash bags. Now the child gets to thinking if their things are in trash bags that must mean they are trash. And if their things are trash that must mean they are trash also. We want to give these children something a little more dignifying.

We collect small suitcases and backpacks, new and used, clean them up, put in some toiletries, a stuffed animal, and put a name tag on each one and give them to the local Child Protective Services office. Different counties handle their children differently, but all are happy to see a child with a suitcase or backpack showing up at a foster home instead of showing up with a plastic trash bag.

Some items we include in each case are: Shampoo, Conditioner, Lotion, Soap, Comb, Toothbrush and Toothpaste, Mouthwash, Kleenex, Washcloth, Notebook and Pencils, and of course a stuffed animal to hold onto. Just another service of the Fairfield F.a.S.T. Lions.
