Naperville Noon Lions Club is a member of the International Association of Lions Clubs founded in 1917 in Chicago. Lions International is the largest and most active service organization in the world, with over 1.4 million members in 182 countries. A non-profit, the Lions focus is to help the vision and hearing impaired. Helen Keller challenged the Lions Club to become "Knights of the Blind" in a crusade against darkness. Supporting that charter, the Naperville Noon Lions Club provides funding for glaucoma testing and visual correction. In addition, the Naperville Noon Lions Club provides hearing and sight services to students and adults who cannot afford them. The Lions also help people with diabetes and issues affecting children.
The Lions mission is simply expressed in our Motto,"We Serve"
Naperville Noon Lions Club helps members of the Naperville community who cannot afford the vision and hearing care that they need. Our impact is also felt within the greater community by providing diabetic test strips for schools in Districts 203 and 204, and by contributing to a number of local organizations.
