Lions Anthem 2016 Day of Service

Lions Clubs International (LCI) is partnering with Anthem Foundation for "Lions-Anthem Volunteer Days", a month-long community service event taking place in 17 U.S. cities this October. Lions-Anthem Volunteer Days is a special opportunity to:
  • Engage Lions and Anthem associates in service events focusing on health and wellness
  • Increase the impact and visibility of community service nationwide
  • Give back to our local communities

This is the second year the Golden Lions Club participated with Anthem on a project for the Family Tree Organization. This years' project was to cleanup an overgrown area in the backyard area at the Karlis Center. Bushes were trimmed or removed, ground cover and crushed granite laid down.

Anthem employees hard at work

As part of the partnership, Anthem Foundation donated US$250,000 to the Lions Clubs International Foundation. The funds will be used to support Lions-Anthem service projects and the Volunteer Days event, and for "Lions-Anthem Foundation Healthy Heroes Grants" to support Lions' health and wellness programs.

The Golden Lions Club is proud to be a part of the growing corporate social responsibility movement by partnering with Anthem Foundation, Anthem Inc. and its national network of dedicated associates. View more pictures of the project here.
