Willapa Lions Club members will campaign across Washington and Northern Idaho for their annual White Cane Days (WCD) fund-raising event. The Lions, in partnership with the Northwest Lions Foundation(NLF), protect and restore sight for kids and adults in the Pacific Northwest.
This Saturday Willapa Harbor Lions will join Lions Clubs across Washington and Northern Idaho in the White Cane Days campaign. From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. On this day, club members will ask for contributions to support the sight programs of the Northwest Lions Foundation.
The club will be at Everybody's Super Supermarket in Raymond. You can also contribute to this campaign by sending a check to P 0 Box 333, Raymond WA 98577
The Lions in the Pacific Northwest assist children and adults in their communities with sight restoration and preservation. All contributions to WCD benefit the sight programs of NLF. The Foundation gives the gift of sight through the following programs:
Lions Patient Care Grants: NLF provides grants to Lions Clubs to assist people in their own communities who need treatment for sight loss but cannot afford it.
Lions Health Screening Unit (LHSU): This program provides free health screenings for vision, hearing, glaucoma, diabetes, and high blood pressure. About 30 percent of the people screened find they have health problems of which they were previously unaware. Last year, the LHSU screened more than 30,000 children and adults.
Lions Project Support Grants: Special grants are available to Lions Clubs and other community organizations to help support vision and hearing-related programs in their local areas.
