Many ways Alaska Lions serve their communities
Volunteer Lions provide vision screening for elementary school children. This screening enables students who have vision issues to get referred for assistance before their school work suffers. Esther West is Chair of the District 49A Sight/Vision Committee.
Joint Sight Committee
The District 49A Joint Sight Committee is composed of Lion members from Anchorage, Eagle River and Chugiak area with the goal of helping those in need who have problems with vision.
The Lions eyeglass recycling center processes approximately 40,000 pairs of eyeglasses per year and sends out approximately 30,000 to eye care missions.
