"The LO Lions Club helps provide vision and hearing exams, eyeglasses, and hearing aids for people who cannot afford them."
The local club also helps with food drives for Lake Oswego's food pantry, Hunger Fighters Oregon, provides scholarships for seniors and helps screen students in kindergarten through sixth grade for vision issues.
