May is recycle for sight monthThis month, collect used eyeglasses and raise awareness about the Lions eyeglass recycling program.
Eyeglass recycling is one of the Lions most popular activities.
Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions in developing nations lack access to basic eye care services. Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and continue to lend their support to the Lions Recycle for Sight Program.
Starting an eyeglass collection in your community can be an easy and rewarding activity that will raise your club's visibility and provide your fellow Lions with a great deal of satisfaction in serving others.
Contact local businesses, schools, libraries, places of worship, city administrative centers and eye care professionals. Invite them to assist with your collection efforts by hosting collection boxes.
Use Lions Recycle for Sight resources for your collection campaign,
Send your collected eyeglasses, reading glasses, frames and sunglassesse to one of the official Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers.
Report your club's eyeglass collection efforts via the online Lions Club Service Activity Report.
