Welcome to the Cumberland Lions Club Site
WHO ARE WE?
Founded on October 11 of 1951 and sponsored by the Woonsocket Lions Club, the Cumberland Lions Club is a group of Good Hearted men and women who like to volunteer their services to help those less fortunate than us, in our community and around the world, providing them with food, clothing, eye glasses, hearing aids, Seeing Eye dogs, disaster relief assistance and much more.
Right now, through our Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), we are raising funds to help the victims of the recent earthquakes in Japan and Ecuador, as well as those of weather related desasters in the USA, India, Paraguai and other areas around the world.
Our motto is:
We also focus on helping our youth. Every year we provide 2 scholarships for two qualified Cumberland High School seniors heading out to College. The students must go to the Guidance Department Office or to the Cumberland Library and ask for the Cumberland Lions Club application, or download it here.
This Club has been in existence since October, 1951. Throughout the years we had, and still have, members who have been in the Medical/Pharmaceutical field and who have worked very hard to make our club a Great Club and our community a better place. In 2015 we instituted a $1,000.00 scholarship in memory of all those members but specially Felix and Delia (Dee) Lima. This scholarship is open to any Cumberland Resident working towards a degree, or certificate, in any healthcare area, such as Medicine, Nursing (including Nursing Assistant), Pharmacy, or Emergency Care Services, such as EMT .
