How We Serve
Lions are all about service through humanitarian projects and District 2-S4 is no exception. District 2-S4’s main humanitarian project is the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville, Texas, but as a District we support 7 additional humanitarian projects; Lions Eye Bank of Texas, District 2-S4 Disaster Relief Fund, Texas Lions Foundation, Lions World Services for the Blind (LWSB), District 2-S4 Youth Contests, Lions Clubs International Foundation, and Leader Dog School for the Blind. In addition to these, each of our 75 plus Clubs support many other local community activities.

Who We Work With
Texas Lions Camp was founded on the principle that every child is deserving of a happy childhood. By inviting children to participate in activities they may have otherwise believed out of their reach, we hope to help them improve their self-esteem and step into their life's calling.
Lions Eye Bank of Texas works inside the Department of Ophthalmology at Baylor University to the provide clinical resources of corneal specialists and others to assist in training and management of the eye bank and the corneal transplants. These resources provide solutions for those in need of sight.
Texas Lions Foundation concentrates its efforts in two areas: humanitarian services and disaster relief. (Grant guidelines) The Foundation strives to support projects that, while falling into one of these two categories, also have long-term and far reaching effects, and promote the objectives of the TLF.
Blind Living Skills
World Services for the Blind serve people who are blind and visuall impaired learn independent living and job training skills. The goal of the rehabilitation center is to prepare blind and visually impaired people to function independently in our "sighted" society.
The Lions Clubs International Foundation mission is to support the efforts of Lions clubs and partners in serving communities locally and globally, giving hope and impacting lives through humanitarian service projects and grants.
The annual Texas Lions' Opportunity for Youth Scholarships provide students with the initiative to research and gain knowledge on various social ramifications of both diabetes and substance abuse. The contests start at the club level, and then are judged at the district before heading to State.
Peace Poster Contest
Working with local students, our clubs have been sponsoring entries to the largest humanitarian art competition in the world for children aged 11 to 13. Creating peace posters gives children the chance to express their visions of peace and inspire the world through art and creativity.
Seeing Eye Dogs
Leader Dog trains seeing eye dogs to provide the freedom of movement taken for granted by the majority of the population. Every person deserves equal opportunity for independent travel. They are the answer for thousands of people in critical need of sight and human connectivity throughout North America.
