"Dear Lions Club Friends:
Thank you for taking time to listen to my presentation on Monday in regards to pre-teen and teen girl empowerment. I am grateful for the generous donation that I received. The donation will be used wisely. I plan on using the donation for art supplies, instruments, snack and much more. Thank you again!
Forever grateful!

Frankfort Lions Club History & Mission

Founded in 1941, the Frankfort Lions Club is a community organization with dedicated volunteers who serve the Frankfort area. Frankfort Lions Club is chartered by Lions Clubs International which represents 1.35 million Lions in 46,000 Clubs located 206 countries throughout the world.

Lions are Active

Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local community.

Lions give Sight

Since 1978, Frankfort Lions have collected thousands of used prescription eyeglasses in conjunction with local businesses that are "drop off points" in order to give the gift of sight to those in need. In addition, Frankfort Lions have held free vision screenings at local schools and provided technology for the visually impaired at the Frankfort Public Library.

Lions serve Youth

Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and screenings. Frankfort Lions annually award scholarships to students at Lincoln Way East High School and Lincoln Way North High School, conduct a Peace Poster Contest at local schools and sponsor "Winter Sports on the Green" at the annual Winter on the Green Festival in conjunction with the Frankfort Park District.

Lions feed Families

For 35 years, Frankfort Lions have distributed more than 2,000 food baskets to 20 - 30 area families every Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Food and gift cards are collected by Lions and organized in baskets that have a main course, all the fixings and additional needs such as toiletries and other canned goods. Often times, a present is in-cluded for children of those families in need.






Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.3 million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
