Eye Glass Recycling

 

Santa Cruz Host Lions, together with community volunteers, collect used eyeglasses for donation to Lion’s Eyeglass Recycling Centers located throughout the world. The used eyeglasses are cleaned, repaired, and classified by description. The eyeglasses are then distributed to those in need by Lion volunteers and other organizations hosting optical missions in developing nations.

Those who assist the Lions in their collecting efforts include: Santa Cruz Medical Optical Department, Costco, Goodwill, Grey Bears and numerous local opticians. These efforts resulted in the Santa Cruz Host Lions taking first place for eyeglass collections at the district convention. If you would like to help collect eyeglasses, click
"Contact us" and we will happily furnish you with a collection box.

 

This Year's Total was 6150 pairs!
