The Lions Clubs in District 4C5 collect used eye glasses and hearing aids and recycle them for re-use by people around the world who are in need of glasses and hearing aids but cannot afford them.
Your donations allows us to continue to be the Knights of the Blind, a title bestowed upon us by none other than Helen Keller. If you don’t know about Helen Keller, please take a few minutes to review our video history.
Not only do we collect them through the locations noted below, we also have interested citizens doing collections in their buildings. Check out this collection story. Also, often times people with vision issues need assistance to read documents and use a device to magnify documents. One of our patrons has one for sale at less than half the cost of a new unit. Read more about it here.
We are still collecting the names and addresses for the recycle locations from our local clubs. If you don’t see a recycling location near you, please contact the club in your area. You may be able to drop your glasses and hearing aids at a club meeting or a location that they will provide. Click Here to locate a club near you. If you click on the club name, it will connect you to the email for the club secretary for that club.
