Willunga Lions is one of 46,000 local clubs in over 200 countries around the world, with 1.4 million members which make up Lions Clubs International, an International secular, non-political service organization founded by Melvin Jones in 1917. The worlds largest service club. Lions aims to meet the needs of communities on a local and global scale.
Willunga Lions was established (chartered) in 1969.
Since 1969, Wilunga Lions continues to strengthens communities through humanitarian projects and hands-on service. We serve neighbors who live next door and people on the other side of the world that we may never meet.
We believe that the world gets better and problems get smaller when people unite to serve their local and global community. Lions help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
Willunga Lions has raised over $1,000.000 to date, with 100% of the money raised benefiting the community!

Build Your Community
When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple: We serve.
In over 200 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.
HOW WE SERVE
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.
Youth Volunteer Opportunities
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.
Community and Environment Programs
We serve local communities – and protect the planet. From performing hands-on community work and service projects to providing emergency assistance, our community and environment programs improve our communities – and protect the environment.
We are among the first to respond when disaster strikes. Our Disaster Preparedness and Relief Programs enable Lions to help local communities – and contribute to Lions relief efforts in other countries – in the event of a natural, man-made or healthcare emergency.
