Lions Clubs International is a worldwide charitible organization made up of community clubs of all-volunteer individuals, like yourself, who donate whatever time they can in an organized effort to help change the lives of people in need both on a local level as well as throughout the world. Our foremost objective is to promote healthy eyesight for fellow community members who cannot financially provide for themselves. Where possible, Lions Clubs also assist with other charities and organizations such as Special Olympics, youth programs and many others. YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Although our store-front collecting was greatlly limited this Christmas season during our annual White Cane Drive, the Florence Lions Club would like to thank the many individuals and businesses who came to the rescue with donations to help keep our Eyesight Program viable for 2017. Since its inception, the Florence Lions Club has consistently applied many thousands of hours of work by its all-volunteer membership to utilize the community's financial support to provide vision care means to local citizens who are unable to afford it.
So, thanks to all of you who help fulfill this mission! Read more below about our work !
The eyesight program includes grade school vision screening by our professionally trained volunteers along with providing funding for professional vision care for children and adults that could not afford it.
Over 3,000 children are screened
annually in Boone County schools with about 10-12% found to
need a follow-up professional exam. Historically, about 200 local residents are provided funding for vision care.

The Florence Lions Club is dedicated to service and helping those less fortunate in our community. Every year, all year long the Florence Lions Club provides for local eyesight care. This effort involves eye screening at Boone County schools, follow up requests for eye exams and treatment as well as purchasing special equipment to help the visually impaired that have no means for assistance. Every dollar that is donated by individuals and companies in the community are returned to the community through these efforts.
If you would like to make a donation or learn more about becoming a member of the Florence Lions Club, please contact Lion Kew Taybi at (859) 371-9353 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are more than 1.3 million Lions spanning 200 countries, consisting of men and women, young and old, embracing a single cause. We share a common spirit. Since our beginning in 1917, we have been united in a single cause: Helping those less fortunate.
We are tackling tough problems such as blindness and drug abuse as well as spreading diabetes awareness and assisting the deaf, disabled, underprivileged, and the elderly. In fact, whatever the community needs to make life better, we are there to help. Lions assist and serve continually providing aid long after the cameras and media are gone. Annually, Lions provide hundreds of thousands of people in need around the world with eye examinations, eyeglasses, eye surgeries, and visual aids.
All of these assistance programs are made possible with volunteer members donating their time and efforts.
