Lions Recycle For Sight


Throughout the year, Lions, Leos, and other volunteers collect used eyeglasses for donation to Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers that are located throughout the world. The used eyeglasses are cleaned and classified by prescription. The eyeglasses are then distributed to those in need by Lion volunteers and other organizations hosting optical missions in developing countries.

The Tucson Downtown Lions Club also collects used hearing aids which are tested, repaired and supplied to those in need.
