Lions HOME HEALTHCARE AND DISABILITY EQUIPMENT Project
 
We LOAN previously used home healthcare and disability equipment without charge for as long as needed; however, we ask borrowers to PLEASE return the equipment to us when it is no longer in use  Our project depends upon voluntary donations of healthcare equipment, that is in good and usable condition.  If you have equipment that is no longer in use, please DONATE it to our Lions Club so that we can help others who are in need of it.  In addition to equipment, we also accept monetary donations which we can use to maintain or repair equipment in order to make it available for others to borrow. 
 
SEVERAL OF OUR INVENTORY ITEMS HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DEPLETED.
 PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING SO THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR COMMUNITY.

Our Equipment Loan program is supported by many Lions, but it flourishes because of the dedicated efforts of Lions Richard, Joe, Sue and Amanda Montgomery and the generosity of The Cherry Grove Tree Farm for providing the storage facilities.   We sincerely thank them for their support.

"We Serve"

Our goal is to serve the people throughout our area; however, to minimize our intrusion into the areas served by our neighboring Lions Clubs and as a result of the fact that equipment loaned beyond the local area is frequently not returned for others to use; we now limit our service area to an approximate 10 mile radius from the Town of Rising Sun.  This includes all of the Rising Sun MD 21911 zip code area and the areas within the designated part of these ten adjacent zip codes:
 
21901 North East MD  - the area north of I-95
21903 Perryville MD  - the area north of I-95
21904 Port Deposit MD  - all
21917 Colora MD  - all
21918 Conowingo MD  - the area east of Rt 222
21921 Elkton MD  - the area north of I-95 & west of Little
                            Elk Creek Rd., Hilltop Rd. and Union Church Rd.
17563 Peach Bottom PA  - the area east of Rt 222.
17566 Quarryville PA  - the area east of Rt 222 and
                             south of Fulton View Rd.
19362 Nottingham PA  - all
19363 Oxford PA  - the area south of Rt. 472  and west of
                             Hickory Hill Rd.
 
If you live outside of the above designated area, please contact your nearest Lions Club or other agencies for help in procuring the Healthcare and Disability Equipment that you need.
 
We occasionally share or exchange equipment with the following nearby Lions Clubs, many of which also provide this service: The Avon Grove PA Lions , The Brookside DE Lions , The Cecilton MD Lions , The Chesapeake City MD Lions , The Conowingo MD Lions , The Darlington MD LionsThe Elkton MD Lions , The Galena MD Lions , The Newark DE Lions , The North East MD Lions , The Oxford PA Lions ,  The Perryville MD Lions ,  The Port Deposit MD Lions and The Wakefield PA Lions.
 
If you live within one of the above Lions Club's service areas please contact them directly for your equipment needs. If their inventory is currently lacking the equipment that you need, simply ask them to contact other Lions Clubs in an attempt to locate the equipment for you. Contact information for many nearby Lions Clubs can be found on the Neighboring Lions Clubs page of this website or by visiting the Lions Clubs International Club Locator.

Lions VISION SCREENING and SIGHT AWARENESS Projects

As part of Lions Clubs International "Vision Screening Program", Cecil County Lions Clubs provide Vision Screening at each Cecil County Elementary School.  The screenings are annual one day events that may consist of multiple sessions in order to screen both morning and afternoon classes.   We perform a non-invasive screening for children in the four to six year age range because that is the age at which they may receive the most benefit from corrective measures.  In many cases, problems that are addressed before the age of seven, may result in the restoration of corrected vision; however, if undetected or ignored, they can become lasting for the remainder of a person's life. 

Based upon each child's test results, we send a letter to their parents advising them of one of the following outcomes:

A copy of the Vision Screening Results and a list of local Eye Care professionals are also provided.  
(3) We were Unable to Complete the Test [en Espanol].   A list of local Eye Care professionals is also provided.
