At our recent 8th Annual Charter Banquet, the Greater Philadelphia Asian American Lions Club was pleased to donate $1,000 to Support Homeless Veterans, Inc., a a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of our forgotten heroes.
We also celebrated the initiation of 3 new Lions! Welcome everyone, and than you to their sponsors!
The Greater Philadelphia Asian American Lions Club recently participated in the Centennial Service Challenge – Relieving the Hunger campaign by distributing nutritious snacks to those less fortunate.
Lions distributed clementines – with lots of Vitamin C to help protect eyesight – and nutritious snack crackers. To celebrate the upcoming Chinese New Year, the snacks were packaged in bright red bags for each person. The bright bags and tasty snacks created a festive atmosphere. Beyond just dropping off the food, Lions expressed their leonine community spirit by taking time to visit and chat with each person, brightening everyone’s day.
On November 9, the Greater Philadelphia Asian American Lions Club was happy to support the Philadelphia Holy Redeemer Chinese Catholic Church and School at their 20th Annual Fundraising Dinner. In addition to having a good time, the club contributed to this important member of our community.

Greater Philadelphia Asian Americans Lions Club, in cooperation with Wills Eye Hospital, hosted Glaucoma Awareness events at several locations in early August. By taking the sessions to locations convenient to Asian-American senior citizens, they reached a tremendous number of people who might not otherwise get good eye care. These sessions were followed by 2 days of free Glaucoma Screenings in the Club office, provided by doctors and nurses from Wills. Those sessions were so popular that more people wanted to be seen than could be accommodated, so 2 additional days of screenings were added in September! The GPAALC thanks the professionals from Wills Eye Hospital for assisting us in providing this valuable service right in our community!
