Upcoming Opportunities  

👓 Eyeglasses Cleaning & Sorting Service

We will gather this Summer (watch for the date), to sort and clean donated eyeglasses from our community partners. This is in preparation for free vision screenings to raise awareness of eye disease and allowing those who may not afford eye exams and prescription glasses to obtain them. We work toward our mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts, which improve quality of life. View a short video from Lion Dr. Jivan! Contact us for more information and if you have more than 10 pair to donate and we will arrange for pick up! If you wish to drop off approximately up to 10 pair or less, for donation, please visit our list of drop off locations.
