More Volunteers Doing More Community Work in More Places than Any Service Club Organization


LIONS

 "Liberty Intelligence Our  
Nation's Safety" 


When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple: We serve. In 207 countries, in hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in schools and eyeglass recycling centers, Lions are doing community volunteer work, helping, leading, planning and supporting. Because we're local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities we live in. And because we're global, we can address challenges that go beyond borders.

Frontline COVID -19 Healthcare Workers

We want everyone to see a better tomorrow. That's why we support sight programs and services including vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglass recycling. Provide eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight. And raise donations through campaigns like SightFirst and Campaign SightFirst II.
 

We believe everyone deserves a healthy life. From providing health programs that focus on hearing loss to supporting efforts to control and prevent diabetes, Lions volunteers are working to improve the health of children and adults around the world We empower the next generation. Whether it's providing youth volunteer opportunities and leadership experiences in a Leo club or sharing a message of peace through our Peace Poster contest, our youth programs invest in the future by reaching out to young people.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!

The New Providence Lions Club has served the community for over 50 years. Most of our efforts benefit the New Providence Community, but we also support Lions International Outreach initiatives including Vision, Childhood Cancer, Diabetes Awareness, Environment and Natural Disaster Relief. 

The recent COVID -19 virus outbreak in our area has created an urgent need for masks and electronic devices to support our healthcare workers battling the virus on the frontlines in our regional hospitals.

This is a community effort which has been led by Joe Savino Owner of Adams Fine Clothing in New Providence. Joe Savino asked the NP Lions Club for assitance with organizing, cutting, sewing and distributing the masks to needy healthcare workers in our region.

In addition, there is a urgent need for smartphones, tablets and baby monitors. The smartphones and tablets are used in two ways. First, for patients to communicate with their family and loved ones, as visitors are not permitted. Second, for the caregivers themselves, who are quarantined, to communicate with their family and loved ones. Many caregivers have not seen their family in weeks. Due to overcrowding in hospitals, makeshift ICU units have been setup to expand capacity and baby monitors are used extensively by the doctors and nurses to continuously monitor patients in the extended ICU units.
