12/10/15 Eyeglasses Cleaning/Sortings & Readings

This fall semester we have continued with our effort to collect donated eyeglasses, clean and read them, and issue them to Global Medical Brigades to prescribe to people in need of glasses in Honduras. The past two years, Pitt Lions worked in conjunction with Global Medical Brigades to sort over 4000 pairs of glasses for their vision station portion of mobile medical clinics in rural Honduran communities. Because of this initiative, many other universities across the U.S. and Canada are also able to provide vision screenings and eyeglasses on their medical brigades.

11/13/15 World Kindness Day

Did you know that the daily operations cost of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is $2 million? Did you know that 75% of the budgeted costs are covered by public contributions? How about that St. Jude treats roughly 260 pediatric cancer patients daily? That many children spend a greater portion of their lives living in a hospital? To help show our support, Pitt Lions teamed up with Epsilon Sigma Alpha on what was called World Kindess Day. We made handmade blankets and cards for the children at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, along with other kinds of support. 

10/30/15 October Food Drive for Pitt Pantry

This October, Pitt Lions participated in a campus wide effort among various clubs to collect canned goods and other nonperishable food items to donate to the Pitt Pantry. Pitt Pantry is a newly available resource for Pitt students who are struggling to find the money to purchase their daily food needs. This is a great service for students who are struggling to make ends meet in terms of getting food, which is why Pitt Lions decided to take part in the effort to support the Pitt Pantry on staying well stocked.

9/15/15 First General Body Meeting of 2015-2016 Fall Semester

It was a successful first meeting of the semester, and Pitt Lions is looking forward to an outstanding semester.
