The Cranberry Lions have raised thousands of dollars through collections, events and direct donations. All collected monies are donated to non-profit organizations including Leader Dogs for the Blind and the Butler Blind Association.

In support of Mission Vision, our Club has collected over 37,000+ pairs of glasses that will be distributed worldwide.

Did you know that your old eyeglasses can change a life? Lions collect prescription glasses, readers, and sunglasses in plastic or metal frames. Children's glasses are especially needed.  Imagine if you could help a child read. An adult succeed at a job. A senior maintain independence. Our recycled eyeglass programs do all of this and more. We've collected more than 40,000 + pairs of glasses and donated these to Mission Vision, an international non-profit based here in Cranberry Township, in the offices of Scott Christie. Learn more, 

Where are the Donation Boxes? The familiar Lions collection bins for used eyeglasses are available in Cranberry Township at Sherwood Oaks, Plains Presbyterian Church, St. Alphonsus Church in Wexford, and the eye care offices of Pittsburgh Optical, Rt. 19; Family Vision Care (Robinhood Dr;) Premier Eyecare of Craberry on Mars Rd (behind Burger King); Family Eyecare North, Seven Fields; and Clear Vision Family Eyecare, 187 Scharberry Lane, Mars (down from Lucianos, off Rt. 228).

The Cranberry Township Area Lions Club is committed to community service and eliminating preventable blindness. Our primary goal is to support sight programs and services including vision screenings, eyeglass recycling, and to provide eye care services to those in need. We hold fundraisers throughout the year, and we give it all to the community and people in need. That's what's special about Lions, and being a Lion.
