We serve In hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in schools and eyeglass recycling centers, Lions are doing community volunteer work, helping, leading, planning and supporting. Because Lions Clubs are local, Lions serve the unique needs of the communities we live in. And because Lions International is global, Lions can address challenges that go beyond borders.
Lions support sight programs and services including vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglass recycling, and provide eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight. From providing health programs that focus on hearing loss to supporting efforts to control and prevent diabetes, Lions volunteers are working to improve the health of children and adults around the world. By providing volunteer opportunities and leadership experiences, and in sharing a message of peace through an annual Peace Poster contest, Lions invest in the future by reaching out to young people. From performing hands–on community work and service projects to providing emergency assistance, Lions participate in community and environment programs that improve our communities and protect the environment.
