For over 64 years, the Arab Lions Club has been providing assistance to individuals in the Arab and Brindlee Mountain communities in dealing with sight related problems. These services include eye exams, eye glasses, medical treatment and surgery when required, and transportation to and from medical centers.
While prevention and treatment of sight related disorders is the primary mission of both the local club and Lions worldwide, the Arab Lions Club also participates in a variety of other service activities with the goal of helping those less fortunate and trying to make our community a better place to live. These services have taken the form of scholarships awarded to deserving students, being the chartering sponsor for Arab Cub Scouts Pack 60 (pack60arabalabama.org) providing Christmas gifts for needy children, delivering fruit baskets to a number of "special" people in the community at Christmas to let them know they are remembered, and providing assistance on an individual basis as needs arise.
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
