In Helen Keller’s, 1925 address to the Lions Clubs International Convention she challenged the Lions to be “knights of the blind in this crusade against darkness”. Since then Lions throughout the world have worked to fulfill this challenge.
Residents within Spokane county continuously reach out to the Spokane Central Lions club for eyeglass and hearing aid assistance. Spokane Central Lions averages assistance for 30 hearing aids and over 200 eyeglasses.
Request for assistance is by application. The application is then reviewed by our Sight and Hearing committee. If approved a voucher is mailed and exams and fittings are provided locally.
