THIS IS WHO WE ARE. THIS IS WHAT WE DO.
The Millis Lions is a charitable organization with only one mission... to serve those in need in our community, in our state, and around the world.
Chartered on February 27, 1945, the Lions of Millis have been raising funds to support cutting-edge eye research, feed the hungry, aid our senior citizens, give scholarships to our graduating high school students and other charitable offerings within the community, for more than 70 years. We are proud to belong to the world's largest service club organization. We are 1.5 million members strong in more than 47,500 clubs worldwide.
Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness – it's part of our history as well as our work today. But we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled, educating individuals on the dangers of Diabetes and helping to fund cures for pediatric cancers.
Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.
Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schoolsthrough scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Speech Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange, and Lions Quest. And our Leo Program provides personal development through youth volunteer opportunities. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 6,500 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.
Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than $1 billion in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction. We are building hospitals and clinics, providing funding for education, clean water projects and sustainable food projects.
Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities. The members of the Millis Lions Club are proudly committed to the citizens of Millis and seek to better the lives of those here and around the world.
