Ever since Helen Keller inspired us to champion the cause in 1925, LionsClubs have served and advocated for the blind and visually impaired. Nearly a century later, this long-standing mission continues unhindered.
Boyne Valley Lions Club has a plan: We have a long history of serving the blind and visually impaired, and remain committed to continuing this mission into our next century of service.
Strategic Objective: Prevent avoidable blindness and improve quality of life for people who are blind and visually impaired.
Lions Clubs International, founded Leader Dogs for the Blind in 1939 and Lions have been dedicated ambassadors and loyal supporters of the mission since that time. Lions identify people in their community who could benefit from Leader Dog’s services, offer assistance to our clients and widely communicate information about our programs throughout their communities. Lions step forward to support the people we serve in significant ways, acting as Leader Dog Chairs in their districts, as puppy raisers and hosts for our breeding stock dogs and as advocates for the community of people who are blind or visually impaired. Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service organization, a global leader in serving people who are blind or visually impaired, and a valued partner to the Leader Dog mission. We are deeply grateful for our longstanding relationship with Lions and proud of our collective impact.
Help us provide vision support to those in need. We provide glasses, Leader Dogs, eye exams, and more to those in need!
