March is Save Your Vision Month.  Lions Clubs around the world are well known for providing assistance to those needing eyeglasses, eye surgeries, recycling of used glasses, Leader Dogs, and much more, for over 75 years.

In order to support vision programs in the community, each year, the Lions Club of Kimberling City, Missouri, hosts a Chili Supper Fundraiser. Club members prepare and donate scrumptious vats of homemade chili and a host of decadent desserts.

All proceeds go straight back into the community. The club supports numerous charities, such as food banks, a scholarship, recycling, hearing and vision programs.
