2) If the person in need is a current enrolled student of La Habra City School District or La Habra or Sonora High School, please contact the school nurse who will give you options.
3) Watch our calendar for upcoming community sight and hearing events where you may recieve a no cost screening.
4th Saturday "Lions in Action!"
Environmental and Humanity Service Project. The La Habra Host Lions Club extends an open invitation for community members to partner with The La Habra Host Lions to help people in need. Basically this project is a collaborative project between the City of La Habra which identifies La Habra people who are disabled, seniors or military Veterans who need help getting their property to code.
Sometimes illness or economic challenge can impact the ability to maintain their home and code enforcement becomes involved. If it is determined that an individual falls within the Lions criteria, the city will notify our coordinator and in turn the coordinator will meet with the individual to determine how we can be of help. The “Lions in Action” work party meets each 4th Saturday of the month at 8am at El Centro/Lions Park, tools are gathered, assignments are given and we come together for 4 hours, or less if we finish to help an individual get to code, restore morale and curve anxiety of helplessness. Most times when we come on the scene, neighbors are giving thumbs up, bringing over refreshments and rolling up their sleeves to help out. Community members are invited to help out. “This is a great way to see how the Lions help people in their community, We Serve!” Lion Randy McMillan, Lions in Action Chair. 562- 697-1612

Lions in Action!
Our life long collaborator and one of the organizations who started the Boys & Girls Clubs of La Habra in 1955, the La Habra Host Lions Club, selected Saturday September 28th to volunteer 4 hours of service to the club. Sixteen Lions members, 5 Leo Club members, and 5 boys and girls club personnel started the morning work party by painting the clubs snack room area. The room was in need of a cleaning and painting. With over 200 children participating inside the club daily, the snack area looks bright and inviting. A wall in the Education Center was also painted.
In addition to the painting, Lion members cleaned sinks, walls, doors, windows and dusted woodwork. Three members cleaned carpets in the clubs Education Center, Community Meeting room, and the children’s play area. It is groups like the Lions who help us cut down costs of labor, cleaning, and repairs. We are grateful to the Lions and Leo club for their dedication not only to the boys and girls club, but to all La Habra non- profit organizations.
On behalf of the board of directors and more importantly the La Habra children who participate in our programs and services, thank you for the work party!
