Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world. Our members do whatever is needed to help their communities.
When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple: We serve. Our focus is the South Grand Lake community and focus on things that matter us, Senior Centers, Schools, Veterans Plaza, Eyeglasses and so much more. We do community volunteer work, through helping, leading, planning and supporting our community. Because we're local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities we live in. And because we're global, we can address challenges that go beyond borders.
We want everyone to see a better tomorrow. That's why we support sight programs and services including vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglass recycling. Provide eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight. And raise donations through campaigns like SightFirst and Campaign SightFirst II.
We believe everyone deserves a healthy life. 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.
We empower the next generation. Whether it's providing youth volunteer opportunitiesand leadership experiences in a Leo club or sharing a message of peace through our Peace Poster contest, our youth programs invest in the future by reaching out to young people.
We serve local communities – and protect the planet. From performing hands-on community work and service projects to providing emergency assistance, our community and environment programs improve our communities – and protect the environment.
