Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world. Our 1.35 million members - who perform community service in 207 countries and geographic areas are different in many ways, but share a core belief: Community is what we make it.
The South Grand Lake Lions Club (SGLLC) is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization that supports the community of Grand Lake. We provide assistance to groups and organizations; and charitable support to individuals to sustain health, dignity, and protection.
The SGLLC has provided support for five care homes and the Oklahoma Boys Ranch. Our scholarship project has provided many local youths the opportunity to enhance their higher education and careers. We have provided over 150 eyeglasses and eye exams, mostly to the children of the community. The SGLLC purchased over 250 smoke detectors that were installed in local homes by our local fire departments.
The Ketchum High School Special Olympics has received $3,000 in the last three years. The SGLLC community support of the Langley City Park has been monumental in the park receiving a $30,000 grant for new playground equipment and our new project, Veterans’ Park, that was completed in 2012. This year, a Leo’s Club was formed with approximately 42 youths, which will ensure the growth of our Lions Club for many years to come.
The SGLLC is the largest Lions Club in the state of Oklahoma. When you join Lions, you join a global service network. So, at the same time you're doing local community service, you can also contribute to Lions volunteer efforts around the world.
Lions Clubs – Ready to Help, Worldwide
Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
The World's Largest Service Club Organization
Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat, and with people we may never meet.
