Lions Club of
The Lions Club of Rumford is a group of service minded men and women who provide assistance to individuals and groups within the City of East Providence, RI and the surrounding communities.
Where There's a NEED, There's a LION
Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
The World's Largest Service Club Organization
Our 46,000 clubs and 1.4+ million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.
Examples of the services we provide are:
We arrange for free professional eye examinations, glasses and frames for children in East Providence whose families cannot afford the expense.
We donate two $500 scholarships annually through the East Providence Citizens Scholarship Foundation.
We raise money each year for the Scott Gorham Memorial Scholarship Fund.
We purchase, assemble and distribute food baskets at both Thanksgiving and Christmas to families that would otherwise go without.
We perform annual vision screening for all public schools and several parochial schools in East Providence, RI.
We respond to numerous requests throughout the year from various organizations and individuals for assistance and are usually able to provide the needed assistance.
We clean local highway several times each year.
We assist at several food pantries and soup kitchens located in East Providence, Pawtucket, Providence and Cranston, RI.
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
