Lions and volunteers will be visible throughout the community on the second week of October. Lions will be giving away rolls of candy and accepting monetary contributions to be used in helping the visually and hearing impaired. It is almost impossible for those who can see and hear normally to fully understand what it is like to be visually or hearing impaired, but they can help through their support of Candy Day.
People can show their support by giving generously, helping underwrite the price of a case of candy, or volunteering for a few hours on Candy Day. Persons wishing to join the Lions in their fight against the effects of vision and hearing loss should contact the Lake Zurich Lions Club. Our contact information is at the bottom of this page.
In addition, we provide eyeglass collection boxes at a number of establishments in the community. The recovered eyeglasses are tested and categorized by the international organization, the forwarded to places throughout the world where eyeglasses otherwise might not be available at all.
