Pennsauken Lions Collect Over 100 Pair Of Glasses

Members of the Pennsauken Lions Club recently emptied the white mailbox in front of the Pennsauken Township municipal building and counted the donated glasses, over 100 pair! They also found a few letters mistakenly deposited into the reconditioned mailbox, including one to a bank! There was also assorted trash inside.

The Lions appreciate the donations of glasses and will continue to collect them throughout the year, but they ask that only glasses, wrapped in a plastic bag, without cases, be deposited in the box and certainly not trash or mail.

Shopping Spree For The Blind

On Dec. 7, the Pennsauken Lions joined the Haddonfield Lions and donated funds for the annual Blind Child Target Shopping Spree. Blind and/or visually impaired children are contacted through the Commission for the Blind and come to the Target store in Cherry Hill with their parents. They are given a $50 gift card, supplied by donations from the Lions Clubs, and they are escorted around the store by members of the Pennsauken and Haddonfield Leo Clubs, a youth auxiliary of the Lions. This year, 29 children came and shopped for their family members. Once the presents are bought, they go to the wrapping room. While their presents are wrapped, they get to eat some snacks and visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. All in all, it was a wonderful event.
