Lauderdale music fests, working vendor booths for raising funds. We have supplied food
baskets during the holidays, and holiday parties for HIV/AIDS children as well as
underprivileged children. We are also supporters of the Lighthouse
of Broward County
and have several drop off
points for the recycling of eyeglasses and hearing aids.
We are a small group, but all have BIG hearts!!
Each service we offer, a pair of glasses, a hearing aid, represents a human being - a child
squinting hopelessly in a classroom, a child or a parent that cannot hear the other, a skilled worker who desperately needs a pair of simple

As a multiple district, Lions support seven major projects located within the State of Florida. All seven projects are important and each designed
to help a different segment of the needy, blind
and handicapped population.
