West Milwaukee Lions Club

A charitable community service organization to help residents in the West Milwaukee area. Mission: To empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding. Vision: To be a global leader in community and humanitarian service.

The same desire that the founders had in helping their community continues just as strong in our current membership. The Club donates scholarships for area high school students and donates to area community organizations.
