The Modesto Sunset Leo Club is an officially chartered club of Lions Clubs International. There are over 6,500 Leo’s Clubs in more than 150 nations throughout the world. LEO stands for Leadership, Experience and Opportunity. The goal of the Leo Club is to provide young people with the opportunity for development and contribution, individually and collectively, as part of the community. Community service is the cornerstone foundation of the Leo program, training kids to make a lifetime commitment to helping others. The Modesto Sunset Leo club meets once a month and tries to do a community service project every other month. Some of the projects the Leo’s have done are: serving Christmas dinner at the Howard Training Center, volunteering at the Gospel Mission, buying and filling backpacks for students at Shackelford, organizing a pajama drive for Sierra Vista children’s center, working at “Parker’s Prom” at Madera Children’s Hospital, running a booth at Earth Day and inspecting and cleaning thousands of donated eyeglasses to be given to those in need – just to name a few. They are always looking for great projects to help out the community.

If anyone would like more information about the Modesto Sunset Leos or would like to join they can contact Leo Advisor Karin Rodriguez at 595-3202 or Susie Hatfield at 604-8371.
