Through service, Lions and Leos have impacted the lives of millions of people. Now more than ever, we are in a position to extend our network of care and show the strength of our worldwide organization. Change the world and bring a spark to your club by participating in LCI’s four themed service campaigns.
Invite other youth in your area to participate in a service project. Projects may include school or community facility cleanups or a visit to a children’s hospital. Allowing youth to develop and lead a service project enables them to learn skills while emphasizing the role of service.
Plan vision health projects and work with the visually impaired. Many Leos and 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.
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.
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.
