Some of the things Lawrence Lions have done to serve our community:

  • Purchase glasses for children referred by the school system, and for needy local adults referred by local social organizations
  • Partnered with the city of Lawrence Public Works department on eyeglass collection competition in schools 
  • Support the Kansas Lions Band Foundation; high-achieving high school students travel the world representing Kansas at Lions events
  • Support "the bus," the Kansas Lions Mobile Screening Unit; this mobile lab travels around Kansas, offering free screenings for diabetes, vision-related problems, hearing and blood pressure
  • Assist the school district in buying glasses for needy children when no social program can help.
  • Helped establish and support a glasses clinic at Babcock Place.
  • Collect and sort used eyeglasses; usable glasses are distributed to the poor in various countries around the world.
  • Support the Kansas Lions Sight Foundation, including the Heartland Lions Eye Banks.
  • Park cleanup - maintain the Lions-built shelter house in Broken Arrow park, and keep the park clean.
  • Hold Trivia Night Fundraisers 3 times per year at Conroy's Pub
