Summer Appeal

Summer Appeal

As a supporter of OLSHF, you’re familiar with our important sight and hearing programs and the difference that they make in people’s lives. Together, we keep the promise made to
Helen Keller of being “Knights of the Blind” by addressing preventable sight and hearing loss.

And we’re close to reaching our 2018 Keep the Promise goal of $100,000 – we need your help to reach the finish line! Support from you and so many others will help us continue to share stories like these:

School Vision Screening

The Oregon legislature recently funded school vision screening, but only enough to support 35% of the vision screenings for students in Kindergarten through 8th grade. With your help – and at $3 per student – we can identify critical vision issues in children at a young age. Children like Avery, of Kinnaman Elementary in Aloha: “Now that Avery has his new eyeglasses, he just loves to read and do his homework!” says Avery’s Mom, Sarah. With your support, we can continue to screen over 180,000 children like Avery next school year.

Patient Care

OLSHF’s longest running program, provides surgical and other medical procedures to people in need of critical vision assistance. This program relies solely on donated funds from people like you who care. With your support, we can help Oregonians like Josh Buxton, who would have lost his sight to corneal disease, jeopardizing his ability to support his young family. AND thanks to our growing network of doctors, we will multiply the value of your donation up to 10 times!

ROAR! Hearing Assistance

Since 1972, the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation has focused on both sight AND hearing. The ROAR! Program continues that mission. ROAR! provides access to affordable hearing exams and high quality hearing aids. This program is made possible by private donations and the discounts of our network of hearing professionals. Access to affordable hearing aids can change the lives of many people who have been closed off from loved ones.
