COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES

Eyeglass Collecting and Recycling

For decades, we have collected approximately 300 pairs of eyeglasses annually. The used eyeglasses collected in our community  help children and adults in developing countries enjoy a better quality of life. 

 

Vision Screening of Young Children

The Pearl River and North Rockland Lions Clubs held a joint eye screening at the Good Shephard Day Care facility in Pearl River NY and other pre-schools in Rockland County.
