Today, Mission Lions Club includes long-time members who originally came from other clubs such as Tierrasanta and Clairemont as well as newer members who were invited to join by existing club members.

Currently Mission Lions Club members spend many hours volunteering for and supporting Lions In Sight, The Blind Community Center of San Diego, Meals on Wheels, The San Diego Humane Society, The Lions Student Speaker Contest, and the Lions Optometric Vision Clinic.

Club Members decorate and deliver about 90 Christmas Stockings to underprivileged preschool children every December.

Santa is Surrounded by pre-schoolers with so many questions!
