Lions Club of Kitchener
Proud to wear the Lion’s Pin – Proud of our community service
Unselfish commitment to be the “Beacon of Hope” and “Knights of the Blind”
Our club usually meets on the first or third Monday in the community
Our local events enable us to assist with:
- Youth Exchange
- diabetes awareness and prevention
- Hospital Foundations
- vision screening for junior and senior kindergarten in schools
- vision and hearing impaired children and adults here, and around the world
- service animals for vision, diabetes,hearing, epilepsy, autism…
Each year the Club organizes and runs the K-W Santa Claus Parade and Citizen of the Year awards. They help provide guide dogs for the visually and physically handicapped as well as hearing impaired citizens.
Annually, the Lions Club disperses over $100,000 to organizations promoting youth sports and exchange programs, sight conservation, support for the elderly and poverty-stricken, prenatal health, and to local hospitals.
