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

Pile of used eyeglassesThat's why Lions Clubs International started the Lions Recycle for Sight program.  Everyone can help.

Throughout the year, Lions in our LaGrange Lions club collect used eyeglasses through a network of donation boxes around town. The glasses are collected and sent to the Georgia Lions Lighthouse in Atlanta where volunteers sort, clean, repair, test and package each individual pair of 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 to one of our boxes at various locations in town. Lions accept prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses and empty plastic and metal frames.  We do not need the cases. Children's glasses are especially needed.
