Lions roam Fox Chase to raise money for visually impaired

The Northeast Lions roamed Oxford Avenue, Rhawn Street and Pine Road in Fox Chase over the weekend, collecting for The White Cane, the Lions’ outreach program to the visually impaired.

Many neighbors greeted the volunteers by name as they were called to cars to accept donation at the intersection. Vice President Angelo Sciarra said he expected to collect between $4,000 and $5,000 over the weekend for the cause.

“The people of the Northeast always step up to the plate when it comes to those who need help,” he said. “We don’t see as many fives, more ones or twos, but they always give what they can to help out.”
