What are Lions Clubs?
We are part of Lions Clubs International, the largest service organization in the world. Lions are an international network of 1.4 million men and women working together to help people in need. One of our most well-known causes is helping the blind and visually impaired--a mission that started back in 1925 when Helen Keller asked Lions Clubs to become "Knights of the Blind".
Lions also participate in a wide variety of projects important to their communities. These range from cleaning up local parks and feeding the hungry to building ramps and providing supplies to victims of natural disasters. Most people in Michigan are also familiar with Lions' work with Leader Dogs for the Blind, KidSight programs to test children's vision, and eyeglass recycling. Lions also help fund and support the Bear Lake Camp for children with disabilities and Eversight ichigan, a local non-profit group that helps restore vision. Our scope and reach is limitless as we strive to live up to the Lions motto: "WE SERVE".

Who are the Lions of District 11-C2?
District 11-C2 is made up of 35 Lions Clubs in six different counties in mid-Michigan, including the Greater Lansing area. We pride ourselves in actively working on projects listed below, such as Leader Dogs for the Blind, KidSight, Bear Lake Camp, and Eversight Michigan. Lions also work on a local level, too, helping families in our own communities to feed people in need during the holidays, provide eye exams for the underserved, support local youth groups, and otherwise bolster community spirit and support. We are all volunteers who donate our time, money, and energy to make our communities, state, and world a better place in which to live.
