Worldwide Week of
ServiceThe Lions Worldwide Week of Service in May is a special Centennial Service Challenge event designed to strengthen our communities and help us reach our Centennial goal of serving 100 million people.
Plan vision projects and assist people who are blind or have low vision. Many Lions already celebrate World Sight Day in October. This is a great month to organize a vision screening, volunteer at a nearby Lions Eye Bank, organize an eyeglass collection in your community.
Implement projects that improve and protect the environment. Organize a highway clean up, plant trees, or plan a community "Earth Day" event to collect recyclables such as aluminum cans, plastic bottles, used cell phones and batteries.
Invite Leos and youth in your area to help organize and participate in a service project. Allowing youth to develop and lead a service project enables them to learn skills while emphasizing the role of service.
