About the Lions

The Rochester Hills Lions Club was chartered in October 1973 and is a local club that supports the mission of Lions International and serves the Rochester Hills residents with special sight and hearing needs. They support and raise funds for Leader Dogs for The Blind, Bear Lake Camp for the Visually Impaired Youth, Penrickton Center for Blind Children, and several other charities. They also collect gently used eyeglasses and hearing aids so that they can be repurposed.

About Leader Dogs for the Blind

From youth camp to orientation and mobility cane training through guide dog training and GPS technology integration, Leader Dog’s programs give clients the confidence and skills they need to live independent lives.
