The Camas Lions are involved in projects as local as cleaning up an area park, or as far-reaching as bringing sight to the world's blind. Lions around the world are dedicating themselves to eradicating preventable blindness and sponsoring drug awareness and education programs for our youth. In our local community we are involved in providing scholarships to Camas graduates, helping with eye glasses, hearing aides and collecting food every year for the local food banks. "We Serve".
The Camas Lions Club teamed with Triangle Resources on Saturday, August 17, removing old hedges, and providing general cleanup services for the local Inter-Faith Treasure House, at 91 C St in Washougal.
For over 49 years, Inter-Faith Treasure House has provided food and assistance to Camas and Washougal residents in need. It functions almost entirely with the help of volunteers and donations.
Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization with more than 1.3 million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world. Since 1917,
Lions Clubs International have aided the blind and visually impaired and made a strong commitment to community service and serving youth throughout the world.
Triangle Resources is a local Recycling Center, and provides waste collection, transfer, disposal, and recycling services.
Over a dozen Lions removed a huge row of hedge-trees with chain-saws and trucks. Triangle Resources donated disposal services for 13 truckloads of vegetation.
On a Local Level through the Lions Sight Foundation of Clark County, the Lions help visually impaired individuals by providing free eyeglasses, eye exams, and surgeries. The Lions are a funding source of last resort and will help those who otherwise could not enjoy the benefits of better vision. Our foundation is comprised of representatives from all the Lions clubs in Clark County and meets at the Washington State School for the Blind at 6:30 PM on the first Tuesday of each month.
Applications received by the Friday before the next meeting will be reviewed. Applicants who submit complete applications will be notified in writing within 10 business days after the meeting of the decision of the foundation
