Carson Valley Lions Club
Used Eyeglass Collection Program

For more than 80 years, individual Lions Clubs and Districts in the U.S., Canada and several other countries have collected used eyeglasses for distribution to the needy in developing nations.  Since 1996, more than 37 million eyeglasses have been collected, and the number of donations each year continues to grow because of Lions Clubs members.

This is an ongoing program and the Carson Valley Lions Club collects around 250 used glasses a month.
