The Mt. McKinley Lions Club of Anchorage has been providing public service since 1950.
Historically Lions Clubs International have focused on preventable blindness, as request by Helen Keller
In 1929. Lions Clubs have grown with Anchorage; there are now 17 clubs here.
Club projects include vision screening for children in the Anchorage School District, making sure seniors
and veterans have eyeglasses, work in food pantries, support of diabetes health fairs and sending
children to diabetes camp. Camps for youth with vision problems/blindness are also a priority.
School Partnerships, support of PTA and ROTC are just a few projects that we support.
Scholarships for high school seniors are coordinated with our foundation, as well as Holiday Projects
from Thanksgiving Dinners, to Holiday dinner for Seniors, to providing cheers for those residing in group
homes. Our logo says it all “Where there is a need, There is a LION” learn more at Alaskalions.org
Mt. McKinley Lions Club meets the 1st & 3rd Thursday of each month 12 noon at the Anchorage Senior
Center. Come learn more about Lions.
Stop by and see us at the Coat Check. Money raised will help the children's Diabetes Summer Camp!
Funds raised at the Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival benefit the children in Alaska who have diabetes. There are children from communities all over Alaska who attend the summer camp program which provides the opportunity to interact with other children who have diabetes and experience all the usual camp activities while learning how to control diabetes. Children who learn how to take care of themselves are less likely to develop the devastating complications of diabetes and lead healthier lives. The partnership between Aurora Productions and the American Diabetes Association makes a difference in the lives of Alaskans who have diabetes.
