PRESCOTT VALLEY EARLY BIRD LIONS CLUB
The Early Bird Lions Club of Prescott Valley, Arizona is a group of volunteers who pool their talents to provide service to the community and assistance to the less fortunate. Our principal service is providing eyeglasses and related vision care to the working poor of our Prescott Valley and the surrounding area.
At our weekly breakfast meeting we socialize, network and have fun! We discuss ways to serve our community - and necessary fund raisers which allow us to serve.
We are looking for service-minded men and women who are interested in improving their community. We are young people and baby boomers; men and women; individuals and couples alike. To become a Lion is to become an active volunteer, a member of a respected international organization, a leader in your community and a friend to people in need.
WE ARE LIONS
We are global. We are committed to pitching in with resources wherever we are needed in the world. We serve where we live. We are ready whenever and however our communities need us.
We give 100 percent. We cover all costs from our own dues, ensuring that all donated funds go to the causes. Transparency and accountability operate at every level; in fact, The Financial Times has ranked Lions Clubs International Foundation the “best among non-government organizations worldwide with which to work.”
We do it ourselves. We do whatever is necessary to help our local communities and our global network. We are proud to be more than a “check-writing” organization. Whether that means raising money or rolling up our sleeves, we do it all on our time.
We are rich in heritage and pride. We are proud that our organization is close to a century old, and that it has a distinguished history of doing good works for the world. Local communities respect and trust their clubs, both because those clubs are made up of neighbors and friends who have a long record of support, and because of the Lions Clubs International name and legacy.
We are in good company. We have fun in our clubs. When we meet fellow Lions for the first time, we treat them like old friends.
We’re open. We are kind and generous people who want to help.
We are dedicated to sight—and more. Since Helen Keller in 1925 challenged the Lions to be “knights of the blind in this crusade against darkness,”
Lions clubs around the world have fulfilled the mission of addressing vision health and promoting research for solutions to vision disease.
Today, Lions clubs work on global initiatives for youth, health, disaster relief and others that affect local communities everywhere.
