Lions Share Pride with Handicapped Children
February 15, 2008
The group which works to help end preventable blindness received an eye-pleasing glimpse of a time-honored agency at work when members of the Brooklyn Downtown Lions Club visited the Helen Keller Services for the Blind.
Club President Jackie Bergman and her entourage were led on a tour of the agency, 57 Willoughby Street, where they were acquainted with the work and programs of the 115-year-old organization, which helps blind and visually impaired people, from infants to seniors, and their families cope and overcome the hurdles of disability.
The Lions Clubs are an international network of 1.3 million men and women in 202 countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world.
Lions participate in a variety of community oriented projects, from cleaning up local parks to providing supplies to victims of natural disasters.
