Used Eyeglasses Dropoff Locations
The Golden Lions Club participates in the Lions International "Recycle For Sight" program by collecting used eyeglasses. Once used glasses have been collected, they are sent to the Sterling Prison, scanned to determine the optics of each pair, cleaned and sorted by perscription. They are then distributed to various organizations who distribute them in the U.S. and around the world to people that do not have access to glasses. Used hearing aids may also be dropped off in the eyeglass collection box.
Collection locations picked up by Colorado Lions Statewide are shown on the map below. View the MAP in full screen.
