Grand Junction, Colorado

The Redlands Lions Club members are dedicated to the core belief “WE SERVE”.  This is demonstrated by the community projects we support and efforts to make Mesa County a better place to live.  The club’s major project is to display the flag on 9 national holidays or commemorative dates during the year at over 700 locations in the Redlands community and Mesa County.

Used Eyeglasses Donation Locations

The Colorado Lions MD6 participates in the Lions International "Recycle For Sight" program by collecting used eyeglasses. In Colorado, once used glasses have been collected, they are sent to the Sterling Prison, cleaned, scanned to determine the optics of each pair and sorted by prescription. They are then distributed to various organizations who distribute them in the U.S. and around the world to people that do not have access to glasses. Used hearing aids may also be dropped off in the eyeglass collection box.
