The Lions Club offers many avenues of support for those in need.
The Lions Club focuses on raising money to support the community, such as creating the Backpack Program for Ferrum Elementary students, providing them with school supplies to start the year- and raising funds to provide the local fire department with all-new uniforms.
If you need free hearing screenings, help with the cost of eye exams and glasses, and eyeglass recycling, reach out today- the Lions Club can help with that too!
