Sanibel Captiva Lions Club

As part of the Lions Clubs International, the world’s largest service club,

we are focused on our motto:

“We Serve”

 


In 1925 when Helen Keller challenged the Lions to be the Knights of the Blind, the need was apparent and the challenge was accepted.  Today, we help those afflicted with sight impairment and blindness through Education and local testing such as regularly scheduled Vision, Diabetes and Hearing Screenings, Restorative Surgeries through cooperating physicians, Free Eyeglasses, and assistance in providing trained Guide Dogs to those in need.  We do this by contributing money raised through our various fund-raising activities to the following organizations:

Florida Lions Conklin Center for the Blind

Southeastern Guide Dogs, Inc

Florida Lions Foundation for the Blind, Inc.
