Portsmouth Lions Club

Serving the Community of Portsmouth Since 1948!

What is a Portsmouth Lion?

We are a group of men and women dedicated to serving our community through various service projects and fundraisers. Members of the Portsmouth Lions Club volunteer their free time to conduct a broad range of community service projects and fundraising events. Proceeds benefit Lions charities, school, and youth athletic organizations. Annually, we award (4) $750.00 College Scholarships at Middletown and Portsmouth High Schools. We provide the food service at the annual Portsmouth Library "Touch-a-Truck" event. Over the past five years, Portsmouth Lions have donated over $30,000.00 to support the local charities we support. To learn more about the Portsmouth Lions and what we do, please join us at one of our monthly meetings or email us at rhodeislandlions@gmail.com.

Dues come to about $60 a year. Unlike other organizations, our admin costs are funded completely by membership dues and not donations from the community. All donations from the community are required to go back to the community.
