During our 99 year history, the key to our longevity and success has been combining our service mission with clever and sometimes outrageous fun. Both sustain us and fuel our continued growth and efforts in the community. Our weekly meetings are conducted in that spirit and the laughter and camaraderie are contagious. Fun and fellowship also accompany our fundraising events and social gatherings.
During the past ten years, we Whittier Lions have generated over $1.1 Million from our fund raising activities, and have given 100% of those funds back to the greater Whittier community
The Whittier Host Lions Club has been serving the greater Whittier community since 1922.
The Whittier Host Lions Club is a group of 127 members of all ages, heritages and walks of life who are dedicated to serving those in need throughout the greater Whittier Community.
In 2019, we raised $98,000 towards our Sight for Kids fundraiser, our largest annual fundraising event.
In 2020, we awarded 12 students a total of $40,000 in scholarships.
At our 2019 Sight Fair, we assisted 265 families with free eyeglasses and eye exams.
The club’s mission is to care for the youth, the hearing impaired, and others in need in the greater Whittier area. Organizations we support are PIH Health, Boys & Girls Club of Whittier, Whittier Historical Society & Museum, and The YMCA of Greater Whittier.
We have events throughout the year to raise dollars for our scholarships and provide services to our residents and community.
We board members work hard and volunteer their time to support our community.
