Global Service Action Campaigns

Global Service Action Campaigns


Through service, Lions have impacted the lives of millions of people. Now more than ever, we are in a position to extend our network of care. To show this strength, Lions have the opportunity to participate in four special service action campaigns.

Engaging our Youth

August – Engaging our Youth
Invite Leos and youth in your area to help organize and participate in a service project. Projects may include school or community facility cleanups or a visit to a home for senior citizens or a children’s hospital. Allowing youth to develop and lead a service project enables them to learn skills while emphasizing the role of service.

Sharing the Vision

October – Sharing the Vision
Plan vision health projects and work with the visually impaired.  Many Lions already celebrate World Sight Day in October. This is a great month to organize a vision screening, volunteer at a nearby Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center, organize an eyeglass collection or an activity to benefit the visually impaired in your community.

Relieving the Hunger

December/January – Relieving the Hunger
Organize food drives and projects to feed the hungry. With the downturn in the global economy, many hunger relief organizations are finding it difficult to keep up with demand. Help alleviate hunger by planning events around the end and beginning of the calendar year to collect and distribute food.

Protecting our Planet

April – Protecting our Environment
Implement projects that improve and protect the environment. Organize a highway clean up, plant trees or plan a community “Earth Day” event to collect recyclables such as aluminum cans, plastic bottles, used cell phones and batteries.
