Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world with roaring service.
The Indianola Noon Lions Club
Our history. Our club was founded in 1930. Lions are best known for fighting blindness, but there are many other ways that we serve our community.
Lions give sight. We conduct free vision screenings for children at local schools. We help children who can't otherwise afford them, get two pairs of brand new glasses. We also collect donations of used glasses for recycling. They are sorted by size & perscription and shipped to the neediest places around the world.
Lions serve youth. Our club serves youth with scholarships, mentoring programs, the Peace Poster contest, and by supporting youth camps and the foreign exchange program. We also support a Leo Program through the high school.
Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study byThe Financial Times.
Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.
Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
