Lions Eyeglass Donation
The Lions have a dropbox at the Harvard Post Office for donations of old unused eyeglasses. The box is in the lobby at 215 Ayer Rd.
While Lion clubs are chartered to support research and services in the areas of sight, hearing and diabetes at the region, national and international level, we also serve our local community both with respect to these healthcare issues as well as a broad range of other local needs. Following are some of the many ways in which the Harvard Lions benefit the local community…
In addition to supporting local community needs and programs, the Harvard Lions like all Lions clubs around the world is focused on serving the blind and visually impaired, as well as those suffering from hearing impairment and diabetes.

Massachusetts Lion Eye Research Fund

When it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple. Helping individual families and senior citizens in need…providing vision and hearing screenings in the local schools…supporting community programs monetarily and hands-on…contributing to charities that do research and provide services for the visually and hearing impaired and those suffering from diabetes…and assisting regions battered by natural disaster. Because we're local, we can serve the unique needs of our community. And because we're part of a regional, national and global organization, we can help address challenges that go beyond borders.
