District 14-L Lions make donation

The Lions of District 14-L donated $3,751.36 to the Western Pennsylvania Hearing Foundation from their Strides Walk that was geared toward hearing loss from diabetes.

Local Lions gathered donations toward the distance they walked.

Two local Lions, Susan Edwards and Delores I. Hite, who are on the board of the Hearing Foundation, presented the check to Dr. Don Gibala, president, and Dr. Barry Hirsh, medical director.

Edwards and Hite attend four meetings a year at UPMC Eye & Ear Institute in Pittsburgh.

The Western Pennsylvania Hearing Foundation’s mission is “To provide assistance to adults and children through the purchase of audiology devices that will improve hearing of those who are hearing impaired.”
