How We Serve

Wesley Chapel Lions Club serves the community

Diabetes Screening 

We provide diabetes and diabetic retinopathy screening for individuals of all ages. Our Lions team is trained in screening, data collection, and works with our district partners to provide these screening at no cost. We are able to provide these services at many local events in Wesley Chapel and the surrounding Tampa Bay Area. 

Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the US and 1 in 5 people do not know that they have it. In the past 20 year the number of diabetes cases has more than doubled.

Vision and Hearing Screenings

The Wesley Chapel Lions Club is able to travel to many  preschools and day care centers where we offer screening services to detect vision and hearing deficiencies in children.

In 2018 we examined over 1,000 preschool children for the most common eye diseases that are often undetected. If not caught before the age of 6 many of these eye ailments will become incurable and can lead to blindness. 

We screen for 7 childhood issues including Hyperopia (farsightedness), Myopia (nearsightedness), Astigmatism (blurred vision), Anisometropia (unequal refractive power), Anisocoria (unequal pupil size), Strabismus (eye misalignment), and Media Opacities (i.e. cataracts and corneal scars).

Food Collection

We actively collect dry goods and non-perishables or local food banks at our fund raisers and local events. We partner with the food pantries to make sure that families in our community have enough to eat.

Lions believe in giving back!

Disaster Preparedness

The Wesley Chapel Lions Club partners with the Lions of Southwest Florida to assist with hurricane preparedness and disaster relief. Our club jumps into action when there is a need to collect and deliver supplies to those affected by these unpredictable events. 

We provide cleanup assistance and other support for people who cannot support themselves. 

Environmental Projects

Driving down Bruce B Downs? Take a look out your window and you might see a Lion in a bright yellow vest. We dutifully work to preserve our community by collecting and disposing of the waste found along this highway. 

Every year Americans use 30 billion foam cups, 220 million tires, and 1.8 billion disposable diapers. 

Every year over 1 million sea birds and 100,000 sea mammals are killed each year by litter. Additionally, approximately 40% of the lakes in America have so much pollution that they are not suitable for fishing, swimming, or aquatic life.

Eye Glass Collection

We have several locations in the community where you can drop off used glasses and hearing aids. The glasses are sorted, counted, and packed into boxes where we send them to Lions organizations that refurbish, recycle, and donate them to people in need.

We have locations in both Wesley Chapel and Land O Lakes.

Thank you to our partners who allow us to collect these important items in their locations.
