The Lions of Wellesley are hard at work in our community ensuring that every member is taken care of. Won't you join us?

Don't be fooled. Food insecurity
exists in our community. In fact, better than 5% of our community suffers from “food security.” The WCLC is dedicated to making sure no family suffers from hunger.
Disaster can strike anywhere and at anytime and the members of the WCLC are ready! We will be the first boots on the ground in the event of a disaster in our community... and we will be there until the very end.

Lions Club

The Wellesley Centennial Lions Club...

We exist to serve humanity.

We’re dedicated to protecting our youth from the devastating effects of cancer and o help children all over the world who’ve been diagnosed with cancer. We support projects and initiatives aimed at improving their quality of life during and after treatment. 

Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.  

We are your neighbors, friends, business owners and colleagues. We live in, work in and play in Wellesley.

​We are more than 1.47 million people in more than 210 countries... boots on the ground in a disaster, warriors fighting hunger, champions of children wiping out measles and pediatric cancer, forward-thinkers funding cutting-edge vision research that will end blindness one day, saviors cleaning our planet and so, so much more. ​

​We are the largest humanitarian organization in the world. 

We are LIONS!

One of the best places to donate old eyeglasses is to the Lions Club Recycle for Sight program. They collect nearly 30 million pairs of glasses each year and distribute them to people in need in developing countries.
