**This is part of a series of posts highlighting ways in which you can donate to community organizations and help others even when your budget doesn’t have room for monetary support.
Can you imagine how difficult life would be if you were unable to see, but couldn’t afford an eye exam or glasses? It costs the Lions Club less than $0.08 to provide a pair of recycled eyeglasses and change someone’s life.
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. You can also package your old eyeglasses and mail them to one of two locations:
–Your nearest Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center
–Lions Clubs International Headquarters
