Lions Recycle for Sight Program

Lions Clubs across the country collect used eyeglasses as a part of the international Lions for Sight Program.  Your donated used eyeglasses could improve someone's life by helping children read, assist a man or woman succeed in his or her job, or help a senior maintain his or her independence.

Our club sends the eyeglasses we collect to the Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center in Farmville, Virginia where volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength, and package the glasses.  Lions re-distribute recycled glasses to people in need in low and middle income communities where they will have the greatest impact.

You can help by donating your used eyeglasses.   You can drop off your usable eyewear at Lions-sponsored collection box in our community.  We have provided a list of the locations of our collection boxes by zip code below.
