PDG Peter Pergolis shared:

The distribution of glasses involved 2 Clubs in District 20-R2, The Yonkers Lions Club and New York Global Leaders Lions Club, assisted by young Global Leaders from the James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation, based on Lion President Jim Luce’s awareness of the need for eyeglasses for seniors on Roosevelt Island. As the District 20-R2, Global Service Coordinator and my wife Lion Joanne being the New York Global Leaders, Club Services Chairperson, I am very happy and proud of what our District and our Lions Club accomplished today.

The glasses delivered today will be distributed to seniors at the Roosevelt Island Senior Center and many of the glasses will be distributed via the Carter Burden Network to other Senior Programs in NYC. The New York Global Leaders Lions Club will keep up the good work and going to send more glasses coming from Lions Club to Roosevelt Island Senior Association to help with more senior citizens in the future.

Our Global Leaders Lions believe that it is the responsibility of all to be aware of needs in our community and with the help of city council member Ben Kallos we will serve our community better.
