That large white cane represents the hope of better vision, members of the Pottstown-Stowe Lions Club say
POTTSTOWN PA – Supplying eyeglasses to Pottstown area residents unable to afford them is again the goal of this year’s “White Cane Days,” a fund-raiser being conducted by the Pottstown-Stowe Lions Club running Friday through Sunday (Oct. 14-16, 2011) from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Redner’s Warehouse Market in the North End Shopping Center, North Charlotte Street, Pottstown PA.
The Pottstown-Stowe chapter of Lions Clubs International includes members from Pottstown, Stowe, Sanatoga, and all of Lower, Upper, and West Pottsgrove townships, representative Ronnie Schoudt said Monday. They hope their collections will help improve the sight of dozens of local children and adults who suffer from a variety of eye-related problems.
The group also helps support regional vision assistance, with donations to the Lions Eye Bank of Delaware Valley and Leader Dogs For The Blind, as well as the Sanatoga-based Meals On Wheels program operated by Family Services of Montgomery County.
