Eye Glass Donation and Recycling                                 

We can recycle your eye glasses

You can help us and help others in a very easy meaningful way by donating your old or no longer used glasses.  The Lions organization has gained worldwide recognition for our work to improve sight.  It began in 1925 when Helen Keller challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness".  The Lions accepted, and today, sight programs remain one of our defining causes.
