Chester Lions Collecting Eyeglasses

The foundation of Lionism is eyesight preservation. Helen Keller, the great advocate for the blind challenged the Lions
to be “Knights for the Blind”. Today, many years later, the Chester Lions Club continues to support any and all eyesight
projects. One of the most important is collecting used eyeglasses to help those in need. Numerous collection boxes have
been installed at strategic locations in Chester and Long Valley.

Schooley’s Mountain Fire House, Schooley’s Mountain Road, Long Valley
