Donate Glasses

You can help our club and Lions Clubs International help others: Donate glasses and change someone’s life.

Free for You — Priceless to Them

Imagine if you could helping:

  • A child read
  • An adult succeed in his job
  • A senior maintain her independence
  • Provide a community with more opportunities to grow and thrive.

Everyday, our recycled eyeglass programs do all of this and more. Here's how you can donate glasses and help.

Drop Your Eyeglasses in Lions Collection Boxes

You can drop off your old eyewear at Lions-sponsored collection boxes in your community. Typical locations include libraries, schools, community centers, places of worship, coffee shops, optometrist offices and other public locations where communities socialize and get together. For information specific to locations in your community, contact your local Lions club.
