Needy Children's Christmas Project

This is one of our largest projects and many of our fundraisers provide funds to help children at need at Christmas time.  We have an Italian Night Dinner in October and 100% of the funds go toward this project.  We also have started selling hotdogs and pop at Bass Pro to raise more money for families in need.  Food is collected in our local schools and local buisness in South Haven.  Members of our club adopt a family and buy Christmas presents and clothing for them.  We have a special meeting to pack boxes with food and other items.  All families are also given a ham.  Members deliver the food baskets and gifts to the family they adopted.  This is a favorite project of many of our members.

Eye Glasses/Vision Screening

We hold free vision screenings for children in preschool at our local community preschools.  The families give permission and then children are screened.  Families are informed if their child needs further assistance with their vision.  We also help families who can not afford to pay for glasses or eye doctor appointments.  Lions collect used eye glasses and go on missions to Mexico to provide glasses to people who cannot afford them.  Eye glass collection boxes are at several locations.  Please help us by donating your used eye glasses.


Hospital Equipment

We have a garage full of hospital equipment that people in need can borrow.  We have hospital beds, crutches, wheel chairs, potty chairs, ect.  Contact our club if you are in need of hospital equipment.


Community Fundraisers

We have different dinners through out the year that go towards community organizations such as: Gabriels Horn, South Haven Boys and Girls Club, South Haven Little League, and South Haven Boys and Girls club.  One to a South Haven resident and the other to a JROTC memeber because they help us with many projects during the year.  We also help out at the annual South Haven Halloween event and Christmas event!  Where there is a need there is a Lion!









High Striker

Every summer you can find the South Haven Lions out at the Porter County Fair with our high striker bell ringing game!  Look for us on the midway.  Proceeds go back into the community.
