The first predominantly African American Lions Club in Texas and the United States has been giving back to the Austin community for 55 years.
The Austin Capital City Lions Club has the distinction of being the first predominately African American club chartered in the State of Texas and the United States. They have helped more than 13 organizations over the years, with their focus on the Family Eldercare Fan Drive and Central Texas Food Bank in the last few years. Along with donating to the above organizations, they recently started working with Kealing Middle School. They have provided them with breakfast, worked with the students on their Service Days, and even helped them re-pot plants, trim trees, and help in their garden.
Austin Capital City Lions Club also provides scholarships and volunteers with the Texas Lions Camp, a residential summer camp for children with physical disabilities, type 1 diabetes, and cancer. The Austin Capital City Lions Club is always looking for ways to serve. Although covid has made them re-think how to serve: they have adjusted and are helping more organizations and doing more service projects than they did in previous years.
RecognizeGood presented this incredible group with a plaque, a $500 donation for their charity of choice, Family Eldercare, and complimentary seats to the 2023 Ethics in Business Awards luncheon; during the Austin Capital City Lions Club’s celebration of 55 years of Service at Huston-Tillotson University.
They are currently adding members and plan to add even more so they can help more people and organizations in the community in the years to come.
