The Millis Lions Club is a 501c4 non-profit 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 serving the citizens of our community.

Through our fundraising efforts, we have been able to support cutting-edge vision research, feed the hungry, aid our senior citizens, offer scholarships to our graduating high school students and support

many other charitable offerings within the community, for more than 75 years. 

Where there's a need... there's a Lion.

Our Mission

Our mission is to EMPOWER our volunteers to serve our community, meet the needs of our citizens, encourage education and health for our citizens

and promote the ideals and philosophies of Lions International throughout our community and the world.

Our Mission

Our Vision

To ENCOURAGE a life of service to others and

raise the quality of life for those in

need in our community and around the world.

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness – it's part of our history, 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 and ending preventable blindness in our lifetime. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Programs, which work to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring.  We offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Speech Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange, and our Leo Program. The Leo Program provides personal development through youth volunteer opportunities for teens aged 12-18. There are approximately 145,000 Leos and 7,500 Leo clubs in more than 150 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.  Massachusetts has received millions of dollars in grants for tornado and flood damage over the past 25 years.

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 our neighbors and those in need around the world.
