"WE SERVE" the Madison Area Communities

One of the Lions motto is "WE SERVE." Our club serves the Madison and Huntsville Communites in a variety of ways. Join us and become a member of the largest service organization in the world--Lions Clubs International.  If you have a project, we have the membership to make it a reality. 

The Madison Area Family Lions Club develops service projects to improve the lives of others in our community. In 2021-2022, our club served 2,452 people in our community through 35 service activities, completing 424 volunteer hours, and raising approximately $3500 through donations and fundraisers.

Did you Know….

An estimated 120 million people are visually impaired because of uncorrected refractive errors (far and near sightedness). Almost all cases can be corrected and normal vision can be restored with eyeglasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery.  

Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions living in low and middle income countries lack access to basic eye care services. Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and collect usable glasses in their communities to support the Lions Recycle For Sight Program.

In the first six months of this year, our Eyeglass Recycling Program has collected 3,280 used eyeglasses for the Alabama Lions Recycling Center. We also donated $100 to the center to help with shipping costs. We have 14 partners in our collection program:
