"It's a Great Day to be a Lion!"

Lions of Oregon

Lions of Oregon and Northern California are made up of over 3,500 Lions Volunteers from 146 Lions Clubs helping those in need. From 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.

Last year, the Lions Clubs of Oregon, worked hand-in-hand with the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation. Our Network of 500 Providers performed free or greatly discounted medical care. Our partners like the Devers Eyes Institute gave generously, as did many individuals and sponsors (both in-kind and direct funders).

We are proud to be part of the world’s largest service club organization (46,000 clubs, 1.3 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.
