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.

Sunrise Day Camp-Pearl River is the world’s first full-summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, provided completely free of charge. Sunrise accepts campers and their siblings who are between 3½ and 16 years old who are on active treatment for cancer or have been treated within the past 5 years.
Our annual Food Drive supports the local food pantries of Rockland County. We also provide financial support to Meals on Wheels, People to People, and the Martin Luther King Center in Rockland County.
The Pearl River Lions Club supports Keep Rockland Beautiful by participating in the Pearl River Cleanup.
