Friends of Geneva Lions
The purpose and focus of the Lions Club is to provide needed service to the community. Many of you have helped and supported us in this endeavor even though you are not members. You have attended our events and bought our raffle tickets. The “Friends” provides you an on-going way to volunteer your time, on your schedule, in helping those within our community. No membership dues, meetings or Club obligations, just the opportunity to provide some of your free time or money in support of those in need.
By joining the “Friends of Geneva Lions”, you can learn about individual opportunities to participate and serve with us and other service organizations. And it allows us to help you connect with those events.
Your “boots on the ground” volunteer service for 2 to 4 hours here and there will make a huge impact. You will have no continuing ties to the Geneva Lions Club other than being on our “Friends of Geneva Lions” email list.
The Geneva Lions Club is in contact with, and gets service requests from, many service organizations in the Geneva and St. Charles communities – more than our members alone can satisfy. Your help would be appreciated. Also, we organize our own service projects and fund raising efforts. These require community participation to be successful. We will periodically send email messages to the “Friends of Geneva Lions” email list to inform you of these opportunities and give instructions on how to connect and respond to the request.
Service opportunities will include, but are not limited to, helping with the Delnor Hospital and the Northern Illinois Food Bank (a much longer list is available at this link).
Indeed, we look to our “Friends” to alert us to other organizations that could use our help. We hope that you will join us and use the “Friends of Geneva Lions” as an efficient way for you to “give back” and support our community.
