LIONS PROGRAMS

Our Roar Can Be Heard In So Many Places!

KIDSIGHT EYE SCREENING

Lions Clubs worldwide are all about vision issues; nobody has done more. The Lions Club of Taos is no different, we are true to this core mission. Our goal is to identify vision problems early, correct them, and give the student the best opportunity to learn to their fullest potential.

TAOS ELDER BENEVOLENT SERVICES

The goal of Taos Elder Benevolent Services, a non-profit organization, is to help elders maintain a high quality of life and health. We provide free guidance to those elders and their families as they apply for federal support programs and as they transition to comfortable, adequate housing in their community or long-term support in a caregiving facility.

FLAGS ON THE PLAZA

This is one service project that is enjoyed by Lions and Non-Lions alike. Displaying 76 US Flags around the Taos Plaza is a labor of love that we look forward to at least seven times a year. All are welcome to pitch in, please come join us.

COMMUNITY CHARITIES

The Lions Club of Taos recognizes that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support.  Through our Community Charities effort, we provide funding to support many worthwhile causes. Each year we award thousands of dollars to various groups which are making a positive impact in our community.

TIO VIVO CAROUSEL

Assembling the Tio Vivo twice a year for the kids to ride takes a lot of hard work; but we are happy to do it, it is truly a labor of love. Nothing warms our hearts like an elderly Taoseno recalling when they rode the same carousel that their grandkids are now riding.

ADULT VISION

The Lions Club of Taos is serious about helping folks of all ages that struggle with vision problems. We make funds available each year to help defray the costs of vision exams, the purchase of eyeglasses, and on a few occasions we are able to help subsidize the cost of routine eye surgical procedures.

EYEGLASS COLLECTION

Did you know that you can make a positive change in someone's life by donating your old eyeglasses? 
We make it easy for you to donate by placing collection boxes around town at places you visit often.

SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

We hope to fill much needed employment gaps in our community by targeting our dollars to where the need is, we are investing in the community and making Taos a better place to live.

HELPING HAND PUEBLO PROJECT

The Lions Club works with the Taos Pueblo Day School Principal and teaching staff to select families with children who are facing financial difficulties and food insecurities.

PICK'A POCKET PARK PICKUP

The Lions Club of Taos will periodically identify a "pocket park" in need of cleaning up, then we step up and provide the labor and inspiration to beautiful the area by picking up trash and removing the invasive species as necessary. Join Us.
