BE A LION
Where There's a NEED, There's a LION
Lions are leaders. leaders in service, leaders in kindness, and leaders in our community. Where there is a need, there is a Lion willing to step up and take on the job. Our community members look to us for strength when times are tough.
To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.
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.
