Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization. We have 1.35 million members in more than 45,000 clubs worldwide.
Lions are everywhere. We’re active men and women in more than 206 countries and geographic areas..
Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness – it’s part of our history as well as our work today. But we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.
Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness. Cambridge Lions provide eye exams and glasses for low income citizens and school children of Guernsey County. In the last year we have purchsed over 100 pairs of eyeglasses totaling over $12,000.
Lions serve the disabled. Cambridge Lions volunteer and donate to Camp Echoing Hills Village for disabled people.
Lions serve diabetics – Because diabetes is the leading cause of blindness Cambridge Lions sponsors the South Eastern Ohio Regional Medical Center’s Diabetes Financial Support Program. We help provide education and aid in medical supplies.
Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest.
Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.
Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.
Lions are active. Our motto is “We Serve.” Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities
Lions have fun! Cambridge Lions meet every Monday at noon in the banquet room of Mr. Lee’s Restaurant 2000 E Wheeling Ave Cambridge Ohio.
