In 1925, Helen Keller challenged Lions to become “Knights of the Blind in the crusade against darkness” during the Lions Clubs International Convention. Today, volunteers of the Lions Clubs of Oregon work diligently to raise funds in order to assist qualified Oregonians in obtaining vision exams and new eyeglasses. Most of Oregon’s Lions Clubs also provide assistance with hearing exams and hearing aids for those in need.
The system and the process of applying for help is volunteer driven. Thousands of people contact the Lions for help every year. Assistance depends on eligibility and available funding. Please be patient and courteous.
These programs are made available primarily to those individuals who do not have insurance that covers vision and hearing and whose income falls at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level Guidelines.
To apply for this program, please contact the Lions in Service line at (971) 270-0203 phone or e-mail their contact information and request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Calls are reviewed daily by volunteers and your contact information will be forwarded to the Lions Club that serves your area. Please include your first and last name, age, a phone number where you can be reached, your city and zip code, as well as what type of assistance you are requesting. Your message will be forwarded to the Lions Club that serves your area.
