You can help give the gift of independence. Lend a hand at the Lions Low Vision Resource Center on Martin Way in Olympia. Volunteer once a month for a four hour shift on a Wednesday or Saturday - or more often if you choose. Training is provided. Choose what you like to do - we need help with these tasks.

  • sort and record items into inventory.
  • help repair equipment, check for batteries, team with correct power cords, etc
  • do computer research to locate resources.
  • update data bases on computer.
  • learn how to use specific phone apps or devices to show clients.
  • make phone calls to clients to see how they are doing with our equipment.
  • just be second person at the Center so we never have one person there alone. Answer door if manager is in back or with client; answer phone if it happens to ring
  • clean up - straighten brochures, tidy up shelves, clean coffee pot, vacuum, dust equipment.
  • train to be a Site Manager so that I can oversee the operation of the center during one or more shifts each month.

The Lions Low Vision Resource Center loans out magnifying equipment and other aids to individuals who are losing their sight. The Center is staffed entirely by volunteers and all services are free. Learn more at olympiahostlions.org .
