Their volunteer efforts go beyond the support of vision care, to addressing unmet health and education needs worldwide.

Populations Blind and Vision Impaired
This past year the 5 Lions Clubs in Cobb County provided vision screening for more than 20,000 students and families in Cobb County. With this grant, an additional machine can be purchased which will now allow the Lions to provide vision screening in the Marietta City Schools, private schools, early learning centers and health fairs.
Since 2016, the East Cobb Lions Club Foundation and it's members of the East Cobb Lions Club have provided over 41,000 free vision screenings in the Cobb County School District. We can identify up to 6 different vision deficiencies compared to 1 that the previous testing discovered. A staff member at the school will determine if the child has resources available for an eye exam and eye wear, as needed. If none is available, our Foundation is committed to providing that service. Over the past 4 years, we have assisted over 260 children with an exam and eye wear. Your donation of $70 or more will provide an exam and 2 pair of glasses for a needy Cobb student.
