The Wheeling Lions Club's primary purpose is the furnishing of eye examinations and eyeglasses, particularly to school children and the elderly. The men and women of our Club also contribute substantially to the West Virginia Lions Sight Conservation Foundation, which, in turn, provides funds for eye surgery, as well as basic eye research at WVU. We also purchase eye examination equipment (titmus machines) for our local schools, provide hearing examinations and hearing equipment whenever there is a need, and are responsible for maintaining the Heritage Trail in downtown Wheeling. Periodic projects also include an annual Police Testimonial Dinner to honor our local law enforcement personnel, fundraising by "ringing the bells" for the Salvation Army and serving meals at the local soup kitchen. Other local projects are funded by our club as the need arises.
