The Service Journey is an approach to living and serving well. To making a real difference people can see and feel. It encompasses four simple phases: Learn, Discover, Act, and Celebrate. We love these words because they transcend organizational formulas. They have no borders. They are the essence of Lions and Leos.
If the past 100 years have taught us anything, it’s that as we serve, we grow. And we were never meant to stop. Service is our journey. Let’s explore it together.
WHAT WE CARE FOR!

Lions Club Flag Appreciation Program for Second Grade
Lions Club members present a flag program for elementary schools in almost every state.
A short Power Point presentation is given with slides of the 13 star flag, 15 star flag, 33 star flag, 48 star flag, the flag description, flag retirement procedure, the flag colors and the Pledge of Allegiance.
The Lions Clubs International Foundation is only as strong as those who support it. Every donation made helps Lions around the world provide greater service to those who need it the most. And 100% of your donations go to the support of our grants and programs.
Lions Rose Float
Since 1994 Lions Float, Inc., a non-profit corporation, has taken charge of directing preparations and funding of the annual float. This year-round activity involves float design, fundraising and organizing and directing volunteers who work on the float decorations. In many cases these volunteers are composed of youth from our Leo clubs. And each year the International President and spouse add at least a few flowers during their visit.
Lions Float Inc. History
In 1992, under the leadership of then International President Donald E. Banker of Rolling Hills CA, Lions Clubs International entered its third float in the New Year’s Day Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena and has continued every year since that time. LEARN MORE

California Lions Friends in Sight provides free vision screenings and recycled eyeglasses throughout Southern California and Northern Mexico. We welcome all people, especially those with financial hardship.
During these screenings, our licensed doctors provide an eye health assessment and if necessary, free recycled eyeglasses. The vision screening does not replace the comprehensive eye examination that you obtain through your doctor’s office. It does assess eye health concerns and provides a useable pair of recycled eyeglasses until professional services can be obtained on your own. LEARN MORE
It’s hard to live a normal life if you can’t see or hear. Yet too many people in our communities suffer from impaired hearing or vision, without the means to fix the problem. Often the solution – such as cataract surgery or hearing aids – is fairly straightforward, but impossibly expensive. LSH steps into that breach.
LSH provides funding for surgery to restore sight or devices to restore hearing for those who lack insurance coverage or otherwise cannot afford it. LEARN MORE
