Charitable Programs 

LIONS ARE KNOWN AS Knights of the blind.

Since Helen Keller challenged Lions Clubs International at the 1925 Convention, we have been most noted for our sight conservation service. We also support many other worthwhile community projects, and donate more than $59,000 per year to local, state, and national charitable organizations.
