Mission Statement:

The Darien Lions Club Foundation is an accredited 501(c)(3) committed to providing assistance to economically disadvantaged individuals with hearing and/or vision impairments.
Welcome to the Darien Lions Club Foundation


The Darien Lions Club is planning for its 40th annual Food Basket Program this holiday season. Last year with the support of several local businesses, organizations and schools we were able to provide hams, turkeys, dairy products, produce and canned food along with gifts  to  200 families in Darien and nearby communities.  The Darien Park District also plays a major role in helping us with this project. 

This year in these challenging economic times our needs may be even greater. Over the years members of our community have generously contributed to this event.  Please consider participating by making a cash donation which will be used to purchase food supplies for this project.  The cost to sponsor a local family is $75.00 and checks can be made payable to the Darien Lions Club Foundation; a qualified 501C(3) organization.  Our mailing address is 1702 Plainfield Road, Darien, IL 60561.

This project has grown to be one of our strongest humanitarian projects and any and all donations are greatly  appreciated.  We will begin packing operations from our Darien Park Dist. Fairview staging headquarters on Friday starting at 5pm and delivering the food baskets and gifts at 9:00am on Saturday, December 20th.

For additional information on providing donations please contact our Food Basket Chairman:

All of our fundraising programs are dedicated to helping individuals who are hearing or sight impaired, as well as persons or families in need.  The holiday food basket program is one of our largest humanitarian efforts we provide.

The Darien Lions Club Foundation is a stand alone fund that is true to our motto 'We Serve'.
