Changing Lives, One Pair at a Time

In just about any dresser drawer, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life.

Lions Recycle for Sight

That's why we started the Lions Recycle for Sight program.  Everyone can help.  Throughout the year, Lions, Leos and other volunteers collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers (LERCs). LERC volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses.  Most of the recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact.


How You Can Help

If you have used eyeglasses you no longer need, you can donate them now.  Lions accept prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses and plastic and metal frames.  Children's glasses are especially needed.  Drop-off at these locations in town. .
