Lions Clubs International

 

Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core  belief – to serve their community.

The Wilmington Island Lions Club was sponsored by the Savannah Lions Club and chartered in May of 1975.  Our Club is in the midst of the growing Islands community of suburban Savannah.  Growth brings a variety of needs to a community.  The Wilmington Island Lions hope to address some of these needs by becoming a viable vehicle to promote a wholesome environment for our youth and citizenry. The Lions motto is “We Serve”.  Wilmington Island Lions are committed to that motto in our local community. Locally, our service opportunities include a wide variety of projects including:
    - Leader Dogs for the Blind and Southeastern Guide Dogs.
    - Glaucoma, diabetes, and other  health fairs and screenings
    - Free eye clinic providing free eyeglasses for those in need
    - Recordings for the blind and dyslexic
 
We support The Georgia Lions Camp for the Blind, a recreational facility for blind and visually impaired youth and adults. It provides a unique summer vacation experience for over 800 campers each year.  We also support The Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation, Inc., which provides vision and hearing care to Georgians in financial need. 

We also have a close working relationship with the   Savannah Center for the Blind and Low Vision (SCBLV). (Formerly Savannah Association for the Blind - SAB.)

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization. We have 1.35 million members in more than 45,000 clubs in more than 206 countries and geographic areas.

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.

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.
