In 1925, Helen Keller speaking to the Lion's in Cedar Point, Ohio, challenged the Lion's to become "Knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness" and from that time, Lions clubs all over the world have been engaged in services to the blind and the visually impaired. 
In 1990, Sight First was launched in an effort to rid the world of preventable and reversible blindness.

Our Royal Oak Club supports Lion's charities including:
    • Leader Dog School
    • Beaumont Silent Children's program 
    • Lion's Visually Impaired Youth Camp
    • Penrickton Center, Michigan Eye Bank
    • The Lions International Foundation 
    • Boy's and Girl's Club
    • The Salvation Army 
    • And many others. 
We also contribute in the community and help those in need with eye exams and the purchase of eye glasses.
