The Lions Club has a loan closet with wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches and other equipment which we loan free to those in need.

Lions Club "Walk For Sight" - 2007

   The Lions Clubs of Western New York invites you to take a "Walk For Sight" Saturday, April 21, 2007 along the Ellicott Creek Trailway adjacent to the Amherst Pepsi Center, 1615 Amherst Manor Drive, Williamsville, NY. Registration will be located just inside the Center's main entrance and will begin at 10 a.m. with the walk starting at 11 a.m. Participants can walk any distance up to 3.4 miles on the well-marked Trailway. After the walk, refreshments and food will be available in the Sky Box rooms on the second floor of the Pepsi Center. An elevator is available for the handicapped.
   The Lions are in the midst of Campaign SightFirst II, a global initiative to raise $200 million for our blindness prevention and sight retention efforts around the world. Thirty-seven million people are blind with 80% losing their vision needlessly. With current growth, 41 million more individuals will lose their sight by 2020. We have pledged not to allow this to happen. Eleven adults and one child lose their sight forever every minute. Please help us in this cause - every donation will be welcomed!
   For more information about the Walk and how you can help, call 716-773-4437, email at or visit our website at and click on the Walk For Sight logo.
