Lions: The World's Largest Service Club Organization


Our 46,000 clubs and 1.4+ million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities.


Westerville Lions Club


The Westerville Lions Club was founded in 1928 as the community’s first service club. It is comprised of local men and women who individually and jointly volunteer their time to provide service to the Westerville community.  All profits from any Lion event will go toward Lions charitable organizations that will fight the major causes of preventable and reversible blindness.  None of the donated amount or activity profits will go towards the benefits of our members.  Sight supported activities supported by our club include organizations that:




  • provide free professional glaucoma screenings and make corneal transplants possible each year




  • establish and support a majority of the world's eye banks, hundreds of clinics, hospitals, and eye research centers worldwide




  • collect millions of pairs of unwanted eyeglasses annually for free distribution to those in need in developing countries




  • offer screenings, eyeglasses and sports goggles to athletes through the Special Olympics-Lions Clubs International Opening Eyes Program




  • provide free quality eye care, eyeglasses, Braille-writers, large print texts, white canes and guide dogs for thousands of people each year
