How Else Do We Make a Difference.
Our major charge beginning with Helen Keller’s challenge is to help the blind, visually impaired and deaf. We pay for examinations and eye glasses for children who cannot afford this. We send children to camps for the blind. We sponsor the Lions Hearing and Vision Van to come to our community and provide free screenings. We also partnered with the Fox Valley Library and did vision prescreening for children from six months to ten years of age.
Collecting Used Glasses.
What a simple but vital means to help people. Collecting used prescription and non prescription glasses for adults and children help millions to see. We collect glasses at the following sights:
Dundee Township Library East Dundee
Dundee Senior Center East Dundee
Dundee Crown High School main office
First Congregational Church West Dundee
Simpson Eye Care West Dundee Rosin/Weinstein Eye Care East Dundee
St. James Episcopal Church West Dundee
Bethlehem Lutheran Church West Dundee
