The Fond du Lac Evening Lions provide services to community, state and international projects to help those in need have a better life through vision, hearing, handicapped or other projects that help those less fortunate than ourselves.
Several of our members volunteer their time, car and gas to transport eye tissue to our Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin in Madison or corneas prepared for surgery to the Fox Valley.
Leader Dogs enhances the lives of people who are blind and visually impaired through free, innovative programs.
The foundation is set up to mostly help people of disasters, such as tornados, hurricanes and large scale diseases.
Our club collects used eyeglasses and hearing aids at the following locations.
The Lions of Wisconsin own one of the best camps for special needs persons in the world. Several Fond du Lac area residents attend a week of camp at no charge.

Low Vision Readers
On occasion, our club provides residents of Fond du Lac with a low vision reader providing we have one available to loan out. If you have one of these readers and would like to donate it to our club so others with low vision problems can have one available to them, contact our club.
We are sorry, but due to our club's size and mission, we can not offer support for the building or funding of ramps at private homes. We also do not provide medical equipment for individuals. The Larsen-Winchester Lions Club, west of Neenah, does have a medial closet and will provide equipment to state residents. They are open Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9 to 11 am. Their building is behind the Larsen Town Hall on Cty. Hwy. T in Larsen.
