Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization with a network of volunteers around the world who work together to respond to the needs of their own communities. Our mission is to empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace, and promote international goodwill.
The Apex Lions Club is part of the Lions Clubs International, and has provided services to the Apex community related to such issues as providing eye exams and glasses to families in need, and collecting used eyeglasses and hearing aids for redistribution internationally. We also have our own vision screening device that helps the early detection and treatment of vision impairments in children. We use revenue from our various fundraising projects to support programs such as Camp Dogwood for the Blind, Boys and Girls Home of North Carolina, Disaster Relief, Diabetes Awareness, Leader Dogs, Boy Scout Troop, Apex Police Department, Western Wake Crisis Center and community needs.
By recognizing students with strength of character, a commitment to learning and a vision for their future, our aim is to invest in individuals who have the potential to positively affect their communities.
