Welcome to Buckingham County Lions Club
Chartered in 1954, the Buckingham County Lions Club, like Lions worldwide, strive to make a difference in our community and beyond. Our main emphasis is helping the visually impaired by providing eye exams and eyeglasses to those who meet our assistance criteria.
We proudly participate in the Lions Eyeglass Recycling Project by collecting used eyeglasses that are sent to the Eyeglass Recycling Center in Roanoke for processing and distribution. Additionally, we collect used hearing aids for the Central Virginia Hearing Aid Bank. We also assist in providing information about services for the visually impaired and can assist with information about Leader Dog and similar programs.
Each year we share proceeds from Buckingham County Day, our major fundraiser, with the county's volunteer fire departments and rescue squad. Moreover, we provide monetary support for camp scholarships to Boy Scout Troop 6535, which helps with parking and litter control during Buckingham County Day. We also donate to the Buckingham County Youth League, BCHS After Prom Celebration, and other worthy causes benefiting this community. Additionally, we provide back-to-school supplies to Buckingham County Public Schools for distribution to children who need the assistance.
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.
