"Lions helping others along the way of life"
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.
Lions are groups of service-minded men and women who are interested in doing volunteer work to improve their communities. We are young people, families and Baby Boomers alike.
To become a Lion is to become an active volunteer, a member of a respected international organization, a leader in your community and a friend to people in need. There are many reasons to become a member.
As a Lion, you'll:
Help your community and gain valuable skills
Learn to be a leader – and lead a respected organization
Network with business people in your community and around the world
Make an impact on people's lives – locally and internationally.
Cultivate lasting friendships
Discover more about yourself
Energize your life and have fun
Volunteering your time gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment that comes from deep within!
"The opportunity I bring to you, Lions, is this: To foster and sponsor the work of the American Foundation for the Blind. Will you not help me hasten the day when there shall be no preventable blindness; no little deaf, blind child untaught; no blind man or woman unaided? I appeal to you Lions, you who have your sight, your hearing, you who are strong and brave and kind. Will you not constitute yourselves Knights of the Blind in this crusade against darkness?"
Helen Keller, 1925
