Lions Club of Buffalo, Host Club

Lions Club of Buffalo, Host Club We Serve
The Lions Club of Buffalo, Host Club, offers assistance with vision needs, collects eyeglasses for the needy living in third world nations, helps people seek hearing aids, responds to acute needs in the community, and holds occasional fundraisers and special Club events, like most Lions. (Links to the Club's Sight or Hearing Assistance Request Forms can be found elsewhere on this website.) For years we've co-sponsored the Annual Lions Dance for the Blind at the Leonard Post VFW Post, underwritten the Western New York Deaf-Blind Group's Christmas Party, supported the Baker Victory Service's Christmas Party for Special Needs Children, and sponsored a team in the Buffalo Sightless Bowlers League. And the Club offers modest support to many other worthy, disability-related organizations as it receives the requests. While the specific recipients vary from year to year, some we have assisted in the recent past include: the Niagara Frontier Radio Reading Service; Western New York Independent Living; Friends of Night People; Excalibur Leisure Services; the Braille Group of Buffalo; Lions Camp Badger (the Empire State Speech and Hearing Clinic); the Elizabeth Pierce Olmstead MD Center for the Visually Impaired; Mid-Erie Counseling and Treatment Services of Buffalo, NY; Helen Keller International, EquiStar Therapeutic Riding Center; and the Club is a Platinum level charter sponsor of the Ira G. Ross Eye Institute. We also support efforts on a broader scale through Lions Clubs International Foundation, such as LCIF's current principal thrust, Campaign Sight First II. We also cooperate with dozens of other Lions Clubs in District 20-N (Erie, Niagara, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua Counties) and in Multiple District 20 (New York State and Bermuda).

Lions Code of Ethics



TO SHOW my faith in the worthiness of my vocation

by industrious application to the end that I may merit

a reputation for quality of service.



TO SEEK success and to demand all fair remuneration

or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or

success at the price of my own self-respect lost because

of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable

acts on my part.



TO REMEMBER that in building up my business it is

not necessary to tear down another’s; to be loyal to my

clients or customers and true to myself.



WHENEVER a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of

my position or action towards my fellow men, to

resolve such doubt against myself.



TO HOLD friendship as an end and not a means. To

hold that true friendship exists not on account of the

service performed by one to another, but that true

friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the

spirit in which it is given.



ALWAYS bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to

my nation, my state and my community, and to give

them my unswerving loyalty in word, act and deed. To

give them freely of my time, labor and means.



TO AID my fellow men by giving sympathy to those in

distress, my aid to the weak, and my substance to the

needy.



TO BE CAREFUL with my criticism and liberal with my praise, to build up and not destroy.
