Since July of 2013 the Lions District 2E2 Eyeglass Recycling Center has supplied recycled glasses to church and medical missions who traveled to Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Panama, Costa Rica, Brazil, Peru, Paraguay, Bolivia, Ethiopia, Uganda, Ghana, Malawi, Cameroon, Vietnam, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Romania, Fiji and the Philippines. Eyeglass recycling is done by volunteers from Lions clubs, Leos clubs, National Charity Leagues, 2nd Saturday, SASO, church groups, colleges, corporate volunteer groups, high school students and anyone else willing to spend a few hours helping us.
You Too Can Serve
The process of turning the boxes and bags of used eyeglasses into re-usable glasses is easy to do. Learning to sort, wash and read the prescriptions can be done in a short time. There are tasks for every skill level and physical ability, so everyone can be productive. Please contact us to plan a work day for your club or group.
Contact your pastor, service organization or doctor and let them know we have glasses available for missions on a first come-first served basis. Bring us your used laptops, cell phones, and digital hearing aids in addition to eyeglasses! Use the “Calendar” tab to check availability and the “Contact Us” tab to request the date and time you’d like to work. Be sure to Indicate the number of volunteers in your group. Shifts are either 9 AM to Noon, or Noon to 3 PM on Saturdays. Arrangements can be made in advance for groups of 10 or more on a weekday. Youth volunteer(s) must be accompanied by one adult for every 4 youths.
