Lions are Ready to Help
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.
Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest service club organization.
We are one of the most effective service club organizations.
We get the job done.
Harriett Jackson, President

When it comes to meeting challenges, our responsibility is simple: We serve.
In 205 countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in schools and in eyeglass recycling centers, Lions are at work, helping, leading, planning and supporting. Because we're local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities where we live. 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 fundraising campaigns.
We believe everyone deserves a healthy life.
From providing health programs that focus on hearing loss to supporting efforts to control and prevent diabetes, we're working to improve the health of children and adults around the world.
We empower the next generation.
Whether it's providing volunteer and 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 service projects to providing emergency assistance, our community and environmental programs improve our communities – and protect the environment.
