COMMUNITY SERVICE Volunteer Form

No experience needed - please consider giving some of your time to help those in need.

Lions have had a long history of serving their community in times of need. District 14-E is proud to continue that long standing tradition by putting together a team of Lions willing to share their skills to help our neighbors during difficult times. Whether it is helping to clean up and rebuild after a natural disaster (flooding, tornados, etc.) or just helping a person in need,
we want to be ready to lend a hand. Please fill out this form if you would be willing to help with a project or two. You do not have to have a specialized skill, to be part of this program but if you do please let us know.

NEW: Lions Diabetes Board

Sept 4 GOLF CHALLENGE

The Lions Diabetes Board of Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties (LDBAW) will sponsor its first annual Labor Day Diabetes District Golf Challenge at Butler's Golf Course in Elizabeth Township.  It is more important now than ever that sponsorships of this event help to replenish over $21K in medication costs in 2020 for those who could not afford their diabetes medications at UPMC McKeesport.  These costs will increase significantly as we begin to fund needed medications at Westmoreland Hospital.

For information on the event, sponsorships, and more, click here for the information packet.
