Spread holiday cheer by giving back

The passing of Thanksgiving always marks the commencement of the holiday season. The mall offers extended hours, your job begins preparing for the annual Christmas party, and you go over your monthly budget for December trying to figure out just how you are going to afford this holiday season.

Give a Christmas to those in need

As the frosty, crisp air has begun to tingle our noses, the children rush through the park filled with anticipation for a bright Christmas.

Lions give across the globe

We have all been moved by the devastation in our own state, country — and now in the Philippines. Many here in Alaska have family members that are waiting for news of their safety. It will be many years before most of the people affected by recent tragedies will find life again as they knew it.

Make a difference by volunteering in your community

The 46,000 Lions clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world’s largest service club organization. We’re also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.

Going once, going twice, sold!

It’s that time of year again. You guessed it — auction season is upon us. Charity auctions are a staple for many non-profits throughout our local communities. With the onset of winter and the “can’t do” season, this seems to be the perfect time of year to offer community members a night out on the town in support of their favorite organization.

Preventing blindness, improving sight

Lions throughout the world travel throughout their communities to conduct vision screenings for adults and children. It is our passion that everyone should be able to see. In Alaska, we are unique due to our limited road system so our challenges are different than most to accomplish our goal. We have teams that travel to the villages to screen, we screen at health fairs throughout the state and any school that request our assistance.
