Lions of Oregon and Northern California are made up of over 4,000 Lions Volunteers from 175 Lions Clubs helping those in need. From re-construction of entire communities like Vernonia, to providing sight and hearing saving surgeries and educational scholarships, to donating tens of thousands of eyeglasses to medical missions, we are committed to changing lives, building community, and investing in the future, one precious individual at a time.
We are proud to be part of the world’s largest service club organization (46,000 clubs, 1.35 million members, 200 countries). We’re also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat, and with people we may never meet.
The contributions of Lions throughout the region and the globe are immeasurable. In some communities in Oregon we run the public library, fund and maintain parks, provide educational scholarships, clean up the environment, support health-related causes and give thousands of free medical check-ups through our mobile screening units. It’s why so many in Oregon and Northern California say life would be unimaginable without Lions Clubs.
