Chippewa Falls Lions Club "Recycle for Sight" project

The Chippewa Falls Lions Club participates in the collection of eyeglasses in support of the Lions Club International Recycle for Sight program.  All types of eyeglasses and sunglasses, prescription and non-presciption are acceptable for donation as well as used hearing aids.  The donated glasses are delivered to the Wisconsin Lions Foundation regional eyeglass recycing center located in Rosholt, WI.  There, they are cleaned, sorted, and prepared for distribution by Lions volunteers and other organizations hosting optical missions in developing countries where eye care is often unaffordable and inaccecsible.

The Chippewa Falls Lions Club maintains convenient drop off boxes at the folowing sites:


Family Fare Market (formerly Gordy's) in downtown Chippewa Falls  (converted mailbox as shown above)

  • Chippewa Optical
  • Northwoods Family Eyecare
  • Cardinal Family Eye Care  (formally New Vista Eyecare)

The club thanks the community for supporting the used eyeglass collection program and expresses our continuing appreciation to the above sites for serving as drop off sites.
