The Sugar Land Lions Club last summer donated a park bench to the new Brazos River Park to honor past, present, and future Lions members.
The club concentrates on helping people who have visual and hearing impairments and community service activities. The purpose of these service projects is to make the City of Sugar Land and Fort Bend County a better place to work and live.
The Sugar Land Lions have been very active in promoting a wide range of service projects. Some of the projects include the construction of the Sugar Land swimming pool, and the concession stand at Sugar Land City Park Little League Field. They have also donated a microwave, tables, and chairs to the community center. Since 1941, the Sugar Land Lions have sponsored three new Lions Clubs in the Sugar Land area.
Their annual service projects include providing eye exams and glasses to needy children and adults. The Sugar Land Lions sponsors the Leo Club at St Laurence Catholic School, Boy Scout Troop 148 (66 years), Cub Pack 148 (56 years), Little League (57 years), and the Sugar Land Swim Team Sharks (over 47 years). They sponsor children to attend summer camp at the Texas Lions Camp for Disabled and Diabetic children.
The club contributes to Project Smile, the Richmond State Supported Living Center, the Texas Lions Eye Bank, Leader Dogs for the Blind, World Services for the Blind, and the Lions Club International Foundation. They also collect and recycle eyeglasses for distribution to people in need outside the United States.
One hundred percent of any money collected from fundraisers or donations goes back to the community and other Lions charities. For more information, visit www.sugarlandtxlionsclub.org.
