Club Projects

The Hudson Lions Club is active in many local programs that benefit the community and the surrounding area. Listed here are some of the ways we volunteer our time and resources to help others. 
Recycle for SightEye Glass Collection

The Hudson Lions Club collects used eyeglasses throughout the year for processing at a regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center. Volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses. Most of the recycled glasses are distributed to people in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact. Drop off locations in Hudson are:

Sam’s Club
Nashua Eye Associates
Kiwanis Club
Rodgers Memorial Library
Planet Aide
Hudson Senior Center

Operation KidSight is a statewide vision screening program for children 6 months to 6 years of age. Most young children don’t get their vision screened until they have problems learning or paying attention in school. By then, it may already be too late. Unless vision problems are detected early and corrected, they risk becoming permanent by age 7. Our mission is to ensure eye screening and follow-up care is given to all kids because every child deserves to learn and see the world clearly.   
Many individuals throughout the world who are blind or who have severe vision loss use the familiar white cane with a red band at the bottom. Lions help increase awareness of this symbol of independence – and the laws governing its use – during international white cane events. In the U.S.A., October 15 is National White Cane Safety Day. The third week in May is White Cane Week. During these events, Lions help to educate the public about the aspirations, hopes and abilities of individuals who are blind or who have severe vision loss.
The Hudson Lions Club proudly sponsors the annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest in Hudson schools. This art contest encourages our young people to express their visions of peace. For more than 25 years, millions of children from nearly 100 countries have participated in the contest.
Santa's Arrival Post Card The Hudson Lions Club invites you to Santa's Arrival on the Hudson Town Common. The tree lighting ceremony is followed by Santa visiting the Community Center where you can take pictures with him. The Lions will be on hand with fun activities for the kids and free vision screening for children & adults.
