Lions Mobile Sight & Hearing Unit of Southeastern Virginia
Supporting the Van

   The Sight & Hearing Van is dependent on the usage fees collected and your generous donations to stay on the road helping our clubs and communities. In 2008 we made the committment to apply all donations to our Van Replacement Fund, unless the donor specifically told us to apply the funds to some other use. That means we also committed to operating the van strictly off the day use and mileage fees we assess - and so far that is working out (with a very tight margin!).

   We're happy to report that at the close of 2017, our Van Replacement Fund is in excess of $85,000, and we have a matching commitment from the Charity Foundation for $75,000. We are in the process of spec'ing the new vehicle and selecting a manufacturer, and expect to have the new van in service in 2019.

    The Sight & Hearing Van is an independent 501.c.3 non-profit charitable corporation. What that means is that any club, individual or organization, Lion or non-Lion, may contribute to us and receive the benefit of a federal tax deduction.

   In addition, Lions District 24-I has established a budget line item for RAM/LAMP - the Remote Area Medical / Lions Assisted Medical Project in Wise County, Virginia every July. Clubs or individuals may contribute to the RAM/LAMP budget line to support sending both the S&H Van and the LAMP trailer full of optical equipment to this extremely worthwhile project.

   For more information on making a contribution to the Sight & Hearing Van or to the RAM/LAMP budget line, please contact our Treasurer, Lion Clay Senecal, by clicking here or at the address below:
