The Western Mass Lions Club District 33-Y has an Emergency Sight & Hearing Fund that provides financial assistance to low-income people in need of general eye care, correction & treatment for expenses such as hearing aides, eye glasses, cataract surgery and eye prosthetics. Fund requests must be reviewed for financial need & the amount of assistance is decided on a case-by-case basis. The Fund serves all of District 33-Y (Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden & Hampshire Counties). The request normally goes through the local Lions Club. Otherwise it can be e-mailed to the District Governor. Application form available on the District website.
