Started in 1954, The Coon Rapids Lions Club has been a vital part of the City and surrounding area. The Coon Rapids Lions Club has been serving this area longer than any other service organization in the community and five years prior to the incorporation of the City of Coon Rapids.

We, the Lions, enjoy working to better the lives and well-being of all people in our community through the education and research programs the Lions sponsor for sight, hearing and diabetes.  

Lions also distribute glasses and fund medical programs for the prevention and relief of river blindness and raise funds for disaster relieve around the world.

Locally, Coon Rapids Lions volunteer at, and raise funds for, local organizations such as the ACBC Emergency Food Shelf, Alexandra House Women's Shelter and Stepping Stone Homeless Shelter, the Mercy Hospital Wellness Van, Can-Do Canines and Feed My Starving Children.

The Lions motto is “We Serve”.

Our mission statement is “To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions Clubs”.
