June 26th, while many focused on summer's start and July 4th celebrations, the local Lion's Club was doing good, delivering one-thousand glasses donated to seniors. They were delivered to the Roosevelt Island Senior Center and will be distributed by the Carter Burden Network.

"One-thousand glasses were delivered to the Roosevelt Island Senior Center to help senior citizens to access better vision care," Pui Chang, spokesperson for the locally based J Luce Foundation, said.

"These glasses were donated to the New York Global Leaders Lions Club via Lion Howard Berman of the Yonkers Lions Club."
