Missouri Lions Club District 26-M4 

What We Do

For more than ninety years, Lions Clubs around the world have been recognized for their service to the visually impaired and hearing impaired. The majority of the world's eye banks have been established by and are currently supported by Lions Clubs, as are hundreds of clinics, hospitals and eye research centers.

We provide eye exams and eyeglasses, hearing exams and hearing aids, leader dogs for the visually impaired and hearing dogs for the hearing impaired. We sponsor a peace poster contest in conjunction with the International Association of Lions Clubs. We recycle used eyeglasses and prepare them for people in third world countries, where a pair of eyeglasses often costs more than a month's wages. Watch for our eyeglass collection boxes throughout the area.

Through our district money-raising projects, we support such organizations as Saving Sight, Leader Dogs for the Blind, World Services for the Blind in Little Rock, AR, MidSouth Lions Sight and Hearing Services in Memphis, and Audio Reader.

Some of the funds we raise are distributed to clubs in the district for college scholarships for graduating high school seniors throughout our district.

The Lions and Leos of District 26-M4 really make a difference in their communities. Where there is a need, they are there to help!
