As part of our mission to serve others, Lions take on roles as organizers, advocates, fund-raisers and hardworking volunteers in our communities.
Since 1917, the Lions commitment to serve others has never wavered. Globally, our major service initiatives are serving the blind and visually impaired, funding vision research and supporting blindness prevention programs. Lions are also dedicated to youth development programs and addressing local community issues and needs.
