Borrego Springs Medical Loan Closet
For over 30 years, the Borrego Springs Lions Club has been helping people in need--particularly children--in obtaining eye care and glasses.

Like other Lions Clubs, the Borrego Springs Lions Club observes White Cane Days each February. This fundraiser raises money for hearing, and other medical expenses for local residents.

At community events they will set up a table where they have the equipment to repair normal damage to eyeglasses. This saves folks the considerable drive to Ramona or farther to get their glasses fixed.

The Lions puts on two pancake breakfasts a year, one during Borrego Days, and the other on Easter Sunday at the elementary school. This isn't a wimpy pancake breakfast either. In addition to flapjacks, they serve a complete menu of eggs, sausage, chili, coffee, juice, and milk.

They also do a lot of work with the local schools, they help fund playground equipment. Last Christmas they had a booth set up to help children who didn't have much money to buy presents for their parents. They donated $5,000 last year to the school's reading program.
