Proceeds from "Sprockets" will benefit numerous Lions projects throughout the local community and state, even nationwide. We've supported the renovation and expansion of Missouri Delta Medical Center's emergency department by pledging to their "When Seconds Count" campaign. We've packed food for Haitian refugees, and also for needy local families served by the SEMO Food Bank. We make annual donations to Kenny Rogers Children's center, Missouri Lions' "Saving Sight" project, and Lions International Foundation, which provides disaster relief worldwide.
Sikeston Lions have assisted many in the area to obtain vision related medical treatment, and collect used eyeglasses to be redistributed. Our group funds annual scholarships for college bound high school students, and encourages youth to become aware of the global dimension of serving others by participating in the Lions annual Peace Poster contest for 6th/7th graders. As the Lions motto says, "We Serve"!
