PAYLESS/LIONS SHOE PROJECT
What do Lions Do?
Lions are men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes in their local and world communities. By conducting service projects and raising funds, Lions strive to help those in need, wherever need exists.
The Lions motto is: “We Serve.”
It is not only our motto, but a definition and philosophy.
In 1925, Helen Keller addressed the Lions at their annual International Convention, challenging them to become the “Knights of the Blind in the crusade against darkness." Since that time service to the blind and visually impaired has become one of the association’s most significant activities. In addition, Lion’s participate in service activities emphasizing diabetes awareness, education and research, community welfare, work with the physically and mentally impaired.
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.
