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 Wild Rose club collect used eyeglasses The glasses are counted and then delivered to our Wisconsin Lions Camp at Rosholt..  There the glasses are then  sorted, cleaned, repaired, tested and packaged. 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 collection sites.  We have collection sites at Farmers State Bank, Patterson Memorial Library, and also at the Wild Rose Lions Building on the south side of Wild Rose.  Lions accept prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses and empty plastic and metal frames.  Children's glasses are especially needed.
