Volunteers. We love you! Lions Club and Special Olympics packed food to feed hungry kids in July. With the school year right around the corner, we are grateful for the help on behalf of hungry children locally.
SPECIAL OLYMPIC FAQS:
- Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and competition to children and adults 8 years of age and older with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
- Their athletes are also invited to participate in Athlete Leadership and Healthy Athletes programs.
- They currently offer 15 sports and serve 514 athletes throughout Brevard County.
LIONS CLUB CODE OF ETHICS:
- To Show my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.
- To Seek success and to demand all fair remuneration or profit as my just due, but to accept no profit or success at the price of my own self-respect lost because of unfair advantage taken or because of questionable acts on my part.
- To Remember that in building up my business it is not necessary to tear down another’s; to be loyal to my clients or customers and true to myself.
- Whenever a doubt arises as to the right or ethics of my position or action towards others, to resolve such doubt against myself.
- To Hold friendship as an end and not a means. To hold that true friendship exists not on account of the service performed by one another, but that true friendship demands nothing but accepts service in the spirit in which it is given.
- Always to bear in mind my obligations as a citizen to my nation, my state, and my community, as to give them my unswerving loyalty in word, act, and deed. To give them freely of my time, labor and means.
- To Aid others by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak, and my substance to the needy.
- To Be Careful with my criticism and liberal with my praise; to build up and not destroy.
Many thanks to these worthy volunteers who help out their local community.
