We  are active with service projects and fundraisers  throughout the year.

Fundraisers  we regularly conduct to raise money with which to assist those in need are our annual Pancake Breakfast  in March ,and White Cane Day in October.  Brooms are sold year round from members and community events. Mint candies can be found in many businesses in the area.

 We are active in HANDS projects, where members perform work for people where the cost is minimal, but the need is great. We host the annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Greencastle School farm each year. We provide cold bottled water for Sidewalk Sales Days in July.  Another activity we perform is handing out treats after the Christmas Parade.

Over the years we have been involved with: weekly Bingo, light bulb sales, broom sales, sandwich sales, purchasing street lights for the town, initiating the Christmas Parade,.

The money we raise from the public all goes back to the public in many ways,. Most goes to assist those with eye care  and related. We have over the years helped raise money to get the John Grove Medical Center  built and operating. We bought and renovated the Antrim House Restaurant and hotel in the 1970's. Funds raised from this project were donated to the Lillian Besore Library and Jerome King Playground.
