We Serve

At The Cleveland Lions Club, we offer a range of programs to support our community, including sight conservation, hearing and speech conservation, diabetes awareness, youth outreach, international relations, environmental issues, and much more. Our programs are designed to meet the unique needs of each individual or group we serve. “We Serve” is more than a motto, it is our commitment.

A Special “Thank You” to Our Partners!

Our Co-Parter, the United Way of the Ocoee Region, helps fund our glasses and cataract surgeries. We could not do what we do if it weren’t for their sponsorship! We have also partnered with Karis Health to help those with their eye needs. Karis has the ability to screen the patients to determine their needs. When a need is found, Karis will provide a form which has the names of the physicians that have agreed to help the Lions Club with their services.

I love our motto, “WE SERVE!” We screen approximately 5000 students each year for vision and if the student needs a referral (we refer about 15%) for further eye exam, we cover that cost along with any eyeglasses they need. We co-partner with United Way of Ocoee Region for our funds. We also have a great annual fundraiser, Pickle Ball Tournament! We also co-partner with Karis Community Health which helps us facilitate our Adult Eyeglasses assistance…. We also collect 1000s of used eyeglasses in our community and send them to areas of the world that need glasses. My advice to others: Become a Lion and feel great about helping our community!
