Eyeglass Collection

The Briarwood/Kew Gardens Lions Club collects new and gently used eyeglasses and sunglasses as part of the Lions Clubs’ Recycle for Sight program. Through Recycle for Sight, refurbished glasses get distributed, usually through humanitarian missions, to developing nations where eye care is often unaffordable and inaccessible. Anyone wishing to donate eyeglasses can bring them to any BKG Lions event or meeting. We also have an eyeglass collection box located at Teachers Federal Credit Union (TFCU), 139-30 Queens Blvd., Briarwood, NY 11435. Glasses can be brought to TFCU during their regular business hours. Please spread the word! We thank TFCU so much for being such great community members! Email us at if you have any questions!


Saying Thanks to Heroes

The Briarwood/Kew Gardens Lions Club partners with Operation Gratitude to host “Say Thank You” letter writing sessions for our deployed troops, new recruits, veterans, first responders and caretakers. It is amazing seeing the community: youths and people of all walks of life, Lion club members who in turn enlisted their co-workers to get involved. Operation Gratitude says “Care Package recipients tell us these letters, notes, and drawings are the most cherished items in their box.”
