At the most recent meeting of the Murray Lions Club Foundation board, the Foundation unanimously approved a $1,000 donation to the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation (KLEF). Murray Lions past president Vicky Crafton said “in most normal years our donation would come from our Candy Days activities; but this has been anything but a normal year and the work performed by KLEF is so important to all Kentucky.
Founded in 1954, The Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation (KLEF) is a charitable non-profit organization whose mission is to provide vision services through education, detection, prevention, treatment and empowerment. Through collaborative partnerships, we enable greater independence and increased quality of life for all Kentuckians while focusing on children and adults in financial need.
The Foundation’s activities are supported through funds contributed by Lions & Lioness Clubs, individual members, businesses, benefactors, fundraising events, memorials and bequests.
With nearly 350,000 Kentuckians who are uninsured and many more who are under-insured when it comes to vision, the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation’s services are in need more than ever.
KLEF is committed to filling the gaps that exist for many Kentuckians by providing affordable access to vision services.
