Lions Clubs International volunteers collect old eyeglasses, reading glasses and sunglasses. We return them to recycling centers where they clean and repair the used eyewear. Ultimately, Lions Clubs distribute the eyeware to people who can’t afford to buy their own.
Donating eyeglasses is easy.
We accept both prescription and non-prescription eyewear, in both adults’ and children’s sizes. Sunglasses are also accepted.
In Johnston, bring them to our Lions Club Community Building at NW 64th Pl and Merle Hay to leave them in the deposit receptical near the front door, or take them to the Johnston Public LIbrary, Created in Johnston, Sara’s Hallmark, Grinnell State Bank, Charter Bank, Crown Point Community Center or to nearby LensCrafters at Merle Hay Mall, Vision 4 Less on Merle Hay, or Wylie Eye Care on NW 86th.
