COMMUNITY SERVICE ACTIVITIES
Sports Extravaganza Goalball
This is a multi-district, 2 day event that provides physical activities and field events for blind and visually impaired students. The Colleyville Lions & Leos sponsor Goalball Teams to compete at the Sports Extravaganza.
Texas Lions Camp Work Weekend
Lions across the state assemble in Kerrville for the Texas Lions Camp Work Day and our club is tasked with splitting firewood for the nightly summer bonfires where the campers celebrate their daily accomplishments. TLC is dedicated to providing a free, week long summer camp experience for children from Texas with physical disabilities, hearing/vision impairment, Type 1 diabetes and cancer.
Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center
Colleyville Lions members meet the 3rd Saturday each month at the Watauga Recycling Center, evaluating, cleaning and cataloging donated eyeglasses.
Volunteers clean the eyeglasses that get through the initial usability screening and then examine them with a lensometer to determine the prescription. They are then packed into boxes according to prescriptions and stored until volunteer humanitarian groups need them.
Vision Screening Services
Colleyville Lions provide free vision screening for children and adults in our community. These events are published thru our webpage and at meetings. Vision screenings help to identify potentially serious vision problems that could lead to blindness. Nearly 1 in 4 children have a vision issue that can be identified and corrected. The events need both trained (certified) screeners to use our instruments and other Lions to register participants.
SafeHaven Celebrity Chef
Mid-Cities SOS hosts this event to assist SafeHaven of Tarrant County in its mission to end family violence. The event itself is a fun atmosphere as guests circulate among 17 tasting stations to be served all-you-can-eat selections from each of the celebrity chefs. After dinner, the chefs present themselves on stage where the bidding for their gourmet dinner packages are auctioned off to the highest bidder. The Lions staff the various booths, wait on tables and act as spotters during the auction.
