"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 communities and around the world with unmatched integrity and energy.
The World's Largest Service Organization
Our 46.000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest servivce club organization. We are also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don't have enough to eat and with people we may never meet."
