Founded in 1941, the Frankfort Lions Club is a community organization with dedicated volunteers who serve the Frankfort area.

Lions are Active


Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local community.


Lions give Sight


Since 1978, Frankfort Lions have collected thousands of used prescription eyeglasses in conjunction with local businesses that are "drop off points" in order to give the gift of sight to those in need.

Frankfort Lions offer free vision screenings to children and adults at local schools, the Frankfort Park District, and the Frankfort Chamber of Commerce Community Expo. 

Lions hold its annual Frankfort Lions Candy Days in October to help further fund projects to assist the visually and hearing impaired in our community and throughout Illinois.



Lions serve Youth

Frankfort Lions award four $1,000 scholarships to students at Lincoln Way East High School annually.  

Frankfort Lions also host Winter on the Green "Frankfort Lions Sports Sunday" in partnership with the Village of Frankfort every January.



Lions feed Families


For 40 years, Frankfort Lions have distributed more than 3,000 food baskets to 20 - 30 area families every Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
 Often times, a present is included for children of those families are in need, and this year due to the pandemic, Lions delivered gift cards.
