Welcome to the Rochester Hills Lions Club!!!

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with 1.35 million members in 46,028 clubs in 192 countries and geographical areas. Lions are men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes. Founded in 1917, the association's motto is "We Serve."

Service To Others - Lions clubs are recognized for their service to the blind and visually impaired. This service began when Helen Keller challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness" during the 1925 Lions Clubs International Convention.

Community Service Week 

September 11 - 17

Rochester Rotary,  Rochester Kiwanis Clubs, Rochester Lions Club and the Rochester Hills Lions Club are working together to celebrate and give back to the community with a joint service event held September 11-17. The project will focus on collecting new underwear, socks, diapers, and pajamas for children in the foster care system.

"Imagine the difference we can make when we harness the power of our three service organizations, all of whom share a passion for taking action and creating lasting change," said Rotary President Tim Duncan.

Kiwanis President Chuck Bissell said, "We looked around for a project that would serve children in particular and decided to focus on foster children this year."

Foster care is a temporary living situation for children whose parents cannot take care of them and whose need for care has come to the attention of child welfare agency staff. While in foster care, children may live with relatives, with foster families, or in group facilities. Over 13,500 children in Michigan are fostered.

Drop boxes for donated items will be available at the Rochester Hills Public Library and Eugenia’s 3rd Street Hair Gallery, both in downtown Rochester. Donation boxes will be available from September 11 through September 17.

Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer business leaders dedicated to improving lives at local and international levels, from helping those in need in their communities to working toward a polio-free world.

Founded in 1915, Kiwanis International clubs and members are dedicated to serving the world's children in 85 nations and geographic areas.

Lions serve. It’s that simple, and it has been since Lions clubs first began in 1917. Giving their time and energy to others is a fantastic way to help your community.

 Although all the local clubs are associated with international organizations, the clothing necessities service project is designed to help foster children in Oakland County.
