About Us.

Making A Great Place To Live Even Better.

Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization with more than 1.35 million men and women in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world. Since 1917 (Waxhaw Club chartered in 1985), Lions clubs have aided the blind and visually impaired and made a strong commitment to community service and serving youth throughout the world. When we work together, we can achieve greater goals.

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.

We are one of the most effective service club organizations in the world. We get the job done. Everywhere we work, we make friends – with children who need schoolbooks, with seniors who need transportation, and with people we may never meet. We’re led by talented, dedicated volunteer leaders from around the world. And, we’re supported by the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), which helps to fund Lions humanitarian projects.

Right now, Lions are improving communities around the world. We’re planning a local project. We’re sponsoring international exchanges for young people. We’re bringing clean water to a remote village. We’re building, sharing, and repairing. And we’re having fun while doing it!

Our jaws dropped when we saw how much food was collected.
