Support for Lions Medical Work
Albina Fuel recently donated $25,000 to the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation designated for the fuel and operating costs of the Mobile Health Screening Unit Program.
The year-round program provides free community and school screenings statewide with most of the charges covered by the Foundation and local sponsoring Lions Club.
Each truck is set up like a small clinic providing testing for vision, hearing, glaucoma, cholesterol and diabetes. By providing consistent access to preventative health screenings, the group offsets some of the potential medical risks and related costs of potentially life threatening conditions.
Since August 1994, the two semi-trucks have traveled the state, visiting over 500 cities and delivering health screenings to more than 300,000 adults and children. With the support of sponsors like Albina, the program can continue to offer vulnerable Oregonians critical health solutions.
