The Verona Lions Club is a service organization dedicated to the health and well being of Verona residents. We provide services such as hearing and sight testing. We also collect eye glasses to be refurbished and redistributed to those who can’t afford new glasses.

Our club maintains a Hospital Loan Closet. In the event that a Verona resident requires a wheel chair, hospital bed, cane, crutches or almost any other health aid, the Verona Lions will deliver it to the resident’s home and set it up.

The Verona lions club has donated a car to the town of Verona, which is used to transport the sick and elderly to doctor’s appointments both in and out of town, and the members of the Verona Lions Club volunteer to drive the car and provide the necessary transportation for an entire month every year.

The Verona Lions Club raises money through various events and activities, with all of the money redistributed to various charities, organizations and individuals within the town of Verona who require assistance.

We currently have more than 40 members all of whom are highly motivated and intelligent individuals who enjoy working together for the betterment of Verona and its residents. We also enjoy socializing; in addition to our twice monthly dinner meetings our members enjoy several social events every year including Charter Night, A night at the races, and ball games.

Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief - to serve their community.

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects - including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest.

Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.

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 by The 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.
