I received an email from LCI last week with some stats about our Centennial Service Challenge for vision screening that I would like to share with you. LCI’s goal was to serve 25 million people through vision screening efforts. We are at the half-way point and have reported 12 million served. This is a reminder to report your vision screening efforts on MyLCI as this is LCI’s only way to know what we’re doing and if we’re on track helping the people we need to help.
Here’s some tips:
- Screenings: When Lions conduct screening activities, it is important to report the total number of people screened because everyone benefitted in some way, even if a referral was not necessary. For example, if 100 people were screened, all 100 should be reported.
- Lions Clinics and Foundations: Lions clinics and foundations offer vital eye care services on an ongoing basis. Remember to report the number served each month. For example: A large clinic that serves 3,000 people in the month of March, should report all 3,000 people.
- LCIF Funded Projects: When Lions receive LCIF funding to implement sight-related projects, the number of people served each month through these projects should also be reported in MyLCI. In addition, Lions should continue to submit their detailed progress reports to LCIF staff. When your Club donates to LCIF, be sure to make a note in the Service Activity that you’re supporting vision screening.
I know there are Clubs that do not enter their service activities into MyLCI. Lion Presidents, please remind your secretary to do this on a regular basis. If we’re to meet our goal of serving 100 million people, we need every, single service activity entered into MyLCI. #Lions100
