The Dunnellon Lions Club is dedicated to our community through several health programs including sight and diabetes, However, we also offer some medical equipment to be used by our community.
Pictured are just a few of the medical devices we have to offer.
It is our belief that we, as members of the Dunnellon community, should help to protect and serve our less fortunate neighbors by offering free eye exams, diabetes checks, and to help give mobility back to those who have lost it.
These devices are for loan, and should be maintained by those who use them, so when the time comes others can benefit from them.
You do not need to be a member of the Dunnellon Lions Club, nor do you have to pay to use these devices. However, we do ask for an application to be filled out so we can determine the best places for these to be used. Much like our eye-glasses program, those who can afford their own equipment may not be granted permission to use these. Our equipment is for the strict use of those who cannot otherwise afford the equipment needed for mobility.
Each piece of medical equipment we have has been generously donated to our club by people in Dunnellon who no longer needs them. If you or someone you know has any type of medical equipment that is not in use, please consider donating to your local Lions Club as these can go on to help many more people within your communities. If you are not certain if a particular device is donation worthy, please contact us. Any device that can help our community is worthy.
For more information on how to receive an equipment loan, please call Lion Frank Gatlin at 727-656-2566. He will send you, either US Postal or email, an application requesting all of the necessary information needed.
