What We Do

With support from local businesses the BAMM Lions Club is able to reach even farther into the community. Our yearly fundraising activities include selling peanuts in the fall, collecting money for White Cane in the fall and spring, and a pancake breakfast in the spring.  

The BAMM Lions Club:
  • Collects eyeglasses and hearing aids
  • Provides vision and hearing tests to those in need
  • Buys eyeglasses and hearing aids for people who cannot afford to purchase their own
  • Partners with LensCrafters to identify vision impaired school children
  • Provides administrative and logistical support to Remote Area Medical's (RAM) annual event in Southwest Virginia 
  • Supports 22 different organizations in the Richmond metropolitan area that provide services to help the blind and others in need  
  • Assists with Swing for Sight, a charity golf program
  • Participates in the Call 12 program with WWBT Channel 12
  • Contributes to disaster response and assistance programs as needed
  • Participates in the Adopt-A-Highway Program - responsible for cleaning Buford Road four times a year
  • Help other Lions members when they may need special assistance
  • Participate in local community parades
