Because we're an international organization, Lions are ready to serve anywhere we're needed. And because we’re the world’s largest service club, there’s never a shortage of Lions willing to help.

The Greendale Lions Club is part of Lions Club International, and is just a small window into how the Lions Club helps others.

Here are some stories about Lions Clubs beyond Greendale that are helping their communities. Maybe some of these stories will inspire you to join this truly giving organization.

- Lions living in Northern Illinois wanted to make sure their visually impaired neighbors had the chance to experience the joys that winter can bring. Members from 13 clubs came together to create Ski for Sight, a weekend-long event that provides fellowship and outdoor activities for the blind each winter.

- Lions clubs in the Pacific Northwest saw the need, and wanted to do something to make the holidays happier. "The kids on the islands didn't have transportation to and from the big cities," One of the islanders asked if a boat that had lights on it could possibly come out to the islands with candy and toys for the kids. That marked the beginning of the Christmas Ship. Every December for the past 60 years, Santa has suited up and stepped off the Christmas Ship to bring gifts and joy to people living in remote islands off the coast of Bellingham, Washington in the United States and British Colombia, Canada.

- Poverty and alcoholism are responsible for a high number of abandoned children in parts of Europe, where hundreds of kids end up in orphanages. These children lead a hard, troubled life, devoid of hope, laughter and love. The Lions of Sölvesborg, Sweden bring joy and new opportunities to these kids by inviting them to a camp in Sweden. This summer camp has kids from children's homes in Lithuania and Poland. Not all of the children from the homes get to come to camp, so it makes the experience even more treasured for those who do.
