Lions help meet the needs of local communities and the world. Our 1.35 million members in 206 countries and geographic areas are different in many ways, but we share a core belief - community is what we make it. Our motto is "We Serve".
Locally we help support the Wolcott, CT community with scholarships, sponsor five yearly blood drives, host ziti diners to help families in their time of need, supporting youth organizations like the Leos Club and most recently the Wolcott Youth Center, peace poster contest and supporting events like the Halloween DARE dance, supporting our senior citizens, donating and delivering food baskets around the holidays to families in need, and sponsoring the Winter Wonderland for the Wolcott community. We also donate to families and organizations that require financial support.
On a state and international level we support the prevention of blindness and other eye related diseases through the Lions International Sight First program and Connecticut Lions Eye Research Foundation (CLERF).
Together, with your help and support, we are able to make a difference in the lives many individuals.
