After raising nearly $500 at the Fall Festival, we decided as an organization to match the donation and give $1,000 to leader dogs for the blind. These guide dogs serve as not only companions but as “assistive devices” of sorts to persons with blindness or visual impairment. Guide dogs, leader dogs, service dogs, and therapy dogs are so important for many who are disabled or ill. We were happy to devote our time fundraising for such an important cause and are proud of the work we have done for leader dog organizations.
We recently attended the 2016 Robinson Township Autumn Festival. You can view photos from the event on our Facebook page, HERE. It is also listed in MyLCI, and we were featured in a recent issue of The Cauldron newsletter, below.
We are excited for tomorrow!
Stop by our booth this Saturday at the Robinson Autumn Festival to meet some adorable leader dogs for the blind! You can also buy raffle tickets to win GREAT prizes from generous donors including Kavic Winery, The Mall at Robinson, Airmall at Pittsburgh International Airport, and several Lions Club members and friends!
Proceeds raised form the Robinson Lions Club raffle will go to guide dog organizations — and the Lions will match all donations and ticket purchases, up to $500!
See you tomorrow! And thank you to our donors and sponsors!

The Robinson Township Lions accept male and female members, ages 18 and older. We do a lot of good in our community which serves Robinson Township and the Pittsburgh area.
We hold meetings once a month, and attend a couple of fun events per year; plus, we do our annual Broom and Bag Sale and other fundraising efforts.
It’s a great way to give back, have fun, serve the community, and forge lifelong bonds.

In memory of late Lion, Lee Louis, a member for decades. We donated to the Leader Dogs program in his honor.
In April of 2016, members of the Robinson Township Lions Club presented Leon’s wife, Eileen Louis, with a plaque in Leon’s honor.
His name will live on as part of the Leader Dogs for the Blind program, and we thank him for his 42 years of service as a Lion.
We are exceptionally proud of the work we do with our friends at the NHS Allegheny Valley School’s Stucco House…
The gratitude, appreciation, and respect with this fine organization and its amazing residents is mutual.

In addition to being recognized for our service to the visually impaired since 1955, the Robinson Lions Club has touched and Improved many facets of the Robinson Township community. To support these activities, we conduct an annual “Broom & Garbage Bag Sale” throughout the township with brooms manufactured by the blind and visually impaired. We are asking for your support to fund these critical and worthwhile projects by purchasing these brooms and/or garbage bags.
To make a purchase, please:
1. Fill out and return the order form (below, or, here) to PO Box 15775, Pittsburgh, PA, 15224.
2. Include a check payable to “Robinson Lions Club.” Brooms and Bags will be delivered to the Robinson Township area between May 1 and May 30.
Note – If you are not home during delivery, we will leave them at your door.
Count to 60 – that’s how much time that a child somewhere in the world has left before going blind. According to the World Health Organization, a child goes blind every minute.
The Lions are not idly sitting by — we’re taking action! In 2011, Lions Clubs International signed a cooperative agreement with WHO to aid in global efforts to fight preventable blindness and focus on emerging threats to vision health. This includes renewed efforts against childhood blindness, diabetic retinopathy, and trachoma.
So, why not consider becoming a Robinson Lion and help us to help others.
