Eyeglass Recycling - benefits the Lions Club - Collection Box located in the TEMS Office now through June

Changing Lives, One Pair at a Time
I n just about any home, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life.
Lions Recycle for Sight
That's why we started the Lions Recycle for Sight program. Everyone can help.
Throughout the year, Lions, Leos and other volunteers collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers (LERCs). LERC volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses. Recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in low and middle income communities where they will have the greatest impact.
Eyeglass Recycling - How You Can Help
Donate glasses and change someone's life. Imagine if you could help a child read, An adult succeed in his job, A senior maintain her independence. And provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive. Everyday, our recycled eyeglass programs do all of this and more.
