Lions Club International
The Saturna Island Lions Club is a member of Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest service club organization with nearly 1.3 million members in 45,000 clubs in 200 countries and geographic areas.
Lions are men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes. Founded in 1917, the association’s motto is “We Serve.”
Worldwide, Lions clubs are recognized for their service to blind and visually impaired people. This commitment extends to sight conservation as well as through their international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness. Lions also collect and recycle eyeglasses for distribution in developing countries year-round.
In addition, Lions make a strong commitment to young people through many youth programs. Lions also work to improve the environment, build homes for the disabled, support diabetes education, conduct hearing programs and, through their foundation, provide disaster relief around the world.
It is estimated that each year Lions clubs donate approximately $550 million and 76 million hours.
