Welcome to the Seattle Ballard Lions Web Site
 
WE SERVE

 

Dedicated to service the Ballard community since 1925
Mission : To serve the needs of the community
 
The Ballard Lions Club is a group of men and women who volunteer their time to humanitarian causes in our community and around the world.
 
Our primary activity is to fund eye exams, glasses, eye surgeries  and hearing aids for needy adults and children. These services are possible because of donations to our Ballard Lions Club Foundation, our fund raising events, the discount price we get from doctors and other organizations, and mainly because of the grants we receive from the Harry & Clare Cayo Wilson Charitable Trust. Harry Wilson was one of the Charter members of the Ballard Lions Club in 1925, and he continued to be an active member until his death in 1995.
 
During the year 2013, and among other things, the club paid for three eye surgeries, helped 31 hearing impaired persons and 44 more with eye exams and glasses. The club also made contributions to the Listen and Talk School for deaf children, gave a scholarship to the UW Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences, donated Thanksgiving  food baskets to needy families. It  provided free tests for vision, hearing, blood pressure, glaucoma and diabetes at the NW Lions Health Screening Unit during the Ballard Seafood Fest.
 
As part of Lions International we support them in their various projects on a global scale including preserving sight, combating disability, promoting health, serving youth and responding to natural disasters.
 
Always looking for service-oriented individuals, we would welcome your visit to one of our meetings. If you are interested in joining us to do humanitarian work please click on our page "Conctact us" . The more members we have the more work we can do.
