Forest Lions Club Thanks Community

Central Virginia is truly a great place to live and work. The generosity and spirit of service from local businesses and citizens alike was made abundantly evident at the annual Forest Lions Club $10K Raffle and Silent Auction held May 3.

As one of our key projects to raise funds during the year, the Forest Lions Club netted more than $12,000 that will support our Back to School and Family Health Fair, provide Leader Dogs and vision assistance to those in need, conduct hearing and vision screenings for local pre-school students, award scholarships to local graduates, grant financial support to various local and regional charities such as T1DE, Park View Community Mission, Lynchburg Beacon of Hope, the Salvation Army of Lynchburg and the Old Dominion Eye Foundation, while also sponsoring the JFHS Student Leo Club, the book buddies reading program at New London and Boonsboro elementary schools, the local Bland Music Scholarship Competition and collecting eyeglasses from Lynchburg and Bedford and Campbell counties as part of our Recycle Sight global initiative.
