The Lombard Lions Club was founded in 1923 with the principle “We Serve.”  This year marks 86 years of service to Lombard, benefiting not only the Sight and Hearing Impaired, but also many other humanitarian services in our community:

  • Four Scholarships with a special emphasis on Special Education

  • Local Eye & Ear Fund

  • Ski for Sight

  • Leader Dog Programs

  • Camp Lions for the Visually Handicapped

  • Mobile Hearing Screenings in Lombard

  • Low Vision Clinics

  • Diabetic Screenings in Lombard

  • Eyeglass Program in Lombard

The Lombard Lions also help financially support these community organizations:

  • YMCA


  • RRAF

  • First Things First

  • Lombard Food Pantry

  • Deicke Center

Helen Keller’s speech in 1925 to the International Convention of Lions Club members at Cedar Point, Ohio, will never be forgotten.  Keller challenged the Lions, then only eight years in existence, to join her crusade against blindness.  Since then, service to the blind has been its major goal.
