Collection of Used Eye Glasses 

We have been participating in this project for over 40 years. The glasses that are collected are brought to the Webster WalMart where they are shipped to Bentonville,  Arkansas. There they are sorted, lens are catalogued and distributed to third world countries, primarily Central America. We also collect hearing aids; basically the ones worn behind the ears.

At the present time we have five drop box locations:

  • Irondequoit Town Hall
  • Irondequoit Town Library
  • Cornerstone on Titus Avenue
  • Vision Works Hudson Titus Plaza
  • ROG on Clinton Avenue South.

This is just one example of the many on-going projects performed by the Irondequoit Lions Club.
