The Abbott Tech Leo Club is a community service club affiliated with the Danbury Lions Club. We meet the first and third Thursday of every month during the school year, where we plan fundraisers and community service projects. A liaison from the Lion’s Club attends our meetings. Our goal is to complete one project per month.

Packing eyeglasses for the Danbury Lions.
Lion Mark Sterling collects eyeglasses in Danbury and brings them to our Leo Club so we can sort, count, and pack them. The glasses are then shipped to New Jersey to be cleaned, fixed, and reused.
