Lions never needed extra incentive to help children throughout our nearly 100-year history. Clubs did so as a matter of course. But this May clubs are being asked to direct their service toward children to help reach our centennial goal of serving 100 million people by 2017. Lions Clubs International has designated May 16-22 as a Worldwide Week of Service to help children in need. Feed a child. Read a book to a classroom. Paint a playground. There are innumerable ways to help children. But there is only one way to report the service to LCI and have it count toward the 100 million goal: via the Service Activities Report on the online MyLCI system (mylci.lionsclubs.org). Activities that qualify for the Centennial Service Challenge (CSC) have a special CSC logo on MyLCI. A club can also qualify for the CSC by making a contribution to LCIF. Mark “donation to LCIF” when entering the activity on MyLCI. Besides assisting 25 million children, the centennial challenge asks Lions to improve vision care for 25 million people, relieve hunger for 25 million and benefit 25 million through environmental projects. Clubs that report their centennial service activities will be awarded a banner patch based on their participation. Questions? Contact LCI at CSC@lionsclubs.org. May 16-22 will be Worldwide Week of Service to help children in need
