Mission Statement: To create and foster a spirit of understanding among all people in the Loveland community by providing voluntary services to those in need.
History: The Loveland Lions Club is one of the oldest clubs in the Loveland community. Our club was established in 1920. Since 1925, Lions Clubs have followed the directive of Helen Keller to be "Knights of the Blind." We have become known for our eye and vision concerns. While that will always be one of our major areas of work, Lions also do whatever they can to improve their community. Lions International is the world's largest service club with almost 1.5 million men and women in 185 countries. The Lions International Foundation annually spends about $25 million worldwide for a myriad of humanitarian services ranging from sight restoring cataract surgeries, to aid for disaster victims.
Loveland Lions spend approximately $14,000 annually to pay for eye exams and eye glasses for low income people. Typically, over half of the recipients are students referred by school nurses. And, of course, Loveland Lions participate in the Eye Glass Recycling Program. A tradition for over 70 years - approximately 2 million people in developing nations receive recycled eyeglasses annually.
Lions share a common spirit. Since our beginning, we have been united in a single cause: helping those less fortunate. We Serve.
