Our club members organize, advocate, fundraise and volunteer to better the lives of those in need in our community. We provide Vision screening in Newmarket elementary schools, operate a free Coats for Kids program, a reading action program for kindergarten students, help fund Dog Guides and Support Dog Guide training school, support local families and individuals in need. A major project for our club and members has been fund raising for the Margaret Behan Hospice. The North Newmarket Lions Club is funded by the proceeds from Bingo World & Gaming Centre 1230 Kerrisdale Blvd, Newmarket.
We collect and provide eyeglass recycling to those in need. We provide high school bursaries and support many of the local charitable organizations working in our community. You would see our members working at the Fairy Lake Artisan’s Festival, the Canada day Festivities, NewBarket, the Terry Fox Run, and the Pet Valu Walk for Dog Guides.
