ATL Lions to Vision Screen @ ATL Fire Rescue Back-To-School Supply Drive

FireAugust 1, 2015

The Atlanta Lions Club will be conducting free vision screenings at a back-to-school event hosted by the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department.  The Fire Department will be providing school supplies and backpacks for needy children of the South Atlanta neighborhoods just south of Turner Fields.  On July 18th Atlanta Lions members met representatives from the Fire Department at the Yo Boulevard Block Party and then were invited to participate as community sponsor.  Two or three Lions will be tucked away in the Fire Chief’s office screening children who attend and wish to have their eyes checked for low visual acuity.

The location of the event is Fire Station 2, 1568 Jonesboro Road, SE  Atlanta, GA  30315 from 12 pm to 4 pm.

Please contact Lion Jotham Reubel or Gary Martin if you would like to participate.
