the LIONS CLUB
Where I work... the Health Center ends up with all of the 'lost' glasses!
Even though we've announced that we have all of these - they remain unclaimed :(
We wanted to figure out a way to recycle these!
I did some research and found out the Lions Club accepts eyeglasses!
You can read more about their Eyeglass Recycling program here.
If your office ends up with a bunch of unclaimed eyeglasses then
please consider mailing them to:
Lions Club International Headquarters
Attention: Receiving Department

I am happy to help the Lions Club because they
have helped many of my students over the years.
Each year I have 2-3 families who apply for financial assistance
for an eye exam and glasses (if needed).
My local Lions Club has helped all of the families I've referred!
Not only does the Lions Clubs offer help for vision needs;
they also offer assistance for:
hearing aids, health-related services, scholarships or educational needs!
You can find your local Lions Club here!
