Bicycles for Children and Adults – Folsom State Prison will collect unwanted bicycles to refurbish. The bicycles are later donated to community members in need.
Glasses – The Folsom Host Lions Club will collect used eyeglasses for the Folsom Vision Project, which provides glasses to those who cannot afford them.
Yard and Fabric – The Folsom Lake Lions Club will collect yarn and fabric to support the Hooks N Needles program at Folsom State Prison, where inmates crochet, knit and sew a variety of items such as caps, scarves, small blankets and toys. The finished items are then donated to a number of charitable organizations.
