KidSight adds New Trailer to Program

Story

 

Seven years ago, a small group of 14 P Lions attended a seminar on eye screening for preschool children at the 2010/2011 MD14 State Convention in Harrisburg, PA. That seminar motivated the group to start a screening program in District 14 P. Then VDG Phil Shober decided to form a KidSight screening program as the District Project for his year as District Governor. At the start of the 2011/2012 year a Board of Trustees was formed, and promotion and fundraising campaign were started. Due to the efforts of the trustees and clubs of 14 P we were able to raise in excess of $20,000 ($15,000 donated by Coventry Lions Club alone) by November of 2011. With these funds we formed District 14 P Lions KidSight Program Inc. (a 503 (C) (3) foundation) and purchased two Spot Vision Screening Cameras. Over the years we’ve added four more Spot Cameras, two by the Foundation and one each by the West Chester Club and the Avon Grove Club.

We have formed a partnership with the Vision Resource Center of Berks County, a local Blind Association. They were using an antiquated screening system using charts to screen children in preschool and daycare centers. The trustees decided to provide the VRC with a Spot Camera and volunteers to help screen. With the help from the Clubs of Berks and Chester Counties and the VRC we have been able to screen over 20,000 children in the past 7 years.

Over the years we had to turn down screening opportunities at festivals and community functions, due to the sensitivity of the camera to sunlight when screening outdoors. In July 2017 the Central Berks Lions Club approached the foundation expressing interest in purchasing another spot camera, upon the learning about the problems of screening outdoors, they decided to purchase a utility trailer and the necessary accessories to allow us to screen at festivals and community functions. The addition of the screening trailer will enable us to increase the number of screenings in Berks and Chester Counties.

Yours in Lionism
