Usable Glasses Give New Life

Members collect eyeglasses, sunglasses, reading glasses and frames. We have several Donation Boxes located throughout the Green Valley/Sahuarita area for your convenience.

Lions meet once each month to sort and clean donated eyeglasses. Each cleaned pair of glasses is read, using a Lensometer, to determine the prescription power of each lens. The prescriptions are printed, taped to the glasses and then individually bagged, making them ready for distribution in developing nations. 

Nothing goes to waste. The unusable glasses and parts are sold to a recycler.

We welcome you to join us in the fun! We meet at 9:00AM, the 2nd Monday of each month at Friends in Deed, 301 W. Camino Casa Verde.
