Lion Mary Contreras, Welcomes you to the Central City East Boyle Heights Lions Club web page.
I encourage you to explore this website and see the many services and projects our Boyle Heights Lions Club sponsors.
If you would like to join a group that serves others in need and helps your community at the same time, give one of our members a call or come by to our weekly meeting. We are always looking for new members who are willing to become a part of a club that serves.
Our club is mainly comprised of members who are bilingual for the purpose and pleasure of serving the Spanish community.
Unified, we combine our strengths to meet the daily needs of local communities because of a common goal....."serve our community"
Structured as a service club, our main concern is Sight and Hearing conservation
Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, 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.
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.
Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.
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.
Lions help during disasters. 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.
