The Portland Hollywood Lions Club will accept used eyeglasses, hearing aids and cell phones from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 8 at the Hollywood Farmers Market on the Grocery Outlet parking lot, 4420 N.E. Hancock St.
Lions Clubs International undertakes projects to help people improve sight and hearing. Donated eyeglasses may be distributed around the world, said Lions member Sandy Woolverton. The hearing aids are reconditioned and given to people in this area, she said.
In June, the Lions held their last meeting of the year at the Ambassador restaurant in Hollywood, celebrating past presidents and installing new officers. Dan Norton will be the new president.
Beginning again in September, the Lions will meet on the first and third Thursdays of the month at the Ambassador, 4744 N.E. Sandy Boulevard at 11:45 a.m. New members or interested parties are always welcome.
