Welcome to the Mint Hill Lions' Club website!
**Sign up for the Mint Hill Lions Club 5k
April 22nd 8:00am Start Time
The Mint Hill Lions' participate in many activities throughout the year including fundraisers such as the Mint Hill Lions Club 5K, Mint Hill Lions Club/Yadkin Bank Car Show, the Mint Hill Lions Club/Chick-fil-A Car Show and our signature Semi-Annual Mint Hill Lions' Pancake Jamborees! We work, or better yet SERVE, throughout the year to raise scholarship money for students at Independence High School; as well as for the deaf, blind, visually impaired and Special Need kids to attend either Camp Dogwood or Camp Thunderbird, the Adult VIP (Visually Impaired Persons) Fishing Tournament, and VIP Day in Mint Hill!
100% of all funds raised, through fundraisers, from the community are used for charitable services or returned to the community either directly or through service projects. No funds raised from the public are ever used to operate the Mint Hill Lions' Club! Lions are not asked to personally contribute funds to projects; but enjoy working in fellowship, raising project funds from the community they serve. 100% of all funds raised from the community are accounted for and used exclusively for charitable purposes!
The Mint Hill Lions Club is on Facebook! Keep up to date with all of our projects!
The Mint Hill Lions' is an individual club, working in partnership with Lions' International.
Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief - to serve their community.
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.
