Eyeglass Collection

The Kenmore Lions, and all Lions Clubs, work to bring sight to as many people as possible. One of the ways we do this is through eyeglass collection boxes. Located at the sites listed, used eyeglasses are collected and sent to a central processing facility. There the glasses are inspected, the prescription is measured, and the glasses are catalogued for world-wide distribution. You are helping people around the world regain their sight.
