Imagine if you could help a child read. An adult succeed in his job. A senior maintain her independence. And provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive. Every day, our recycled eyeglass programs do all of this and more. Here’s how you can help.
The Lions Club in our community and many other clubs collect used prescription eyeglasses and prescription and non-prescription sunglasses as part of a unique recycling program. The collected glasses will be cleaned and prepared for distribution in developing countries where eye care is often unaffordable and inaccessible.
We are asking people to look through their closets for used eyeglasses and donate them to the Lions Recycle For Sight program. Children’s glasses especially are in need.
To donate used glasses (including sunglasses and reading glasses), place them in the specially marked Lions Recycle For Sight collection boxes located at Hours Eye Optical. Please drop off your used glasses at your convenience.
