Your old glasses can change a life!
Lions of South Dakota collect more than 50,000 pairs of used eyeglasses every year for volunteer missions. Every pair of glasses is inspected for quality, and volunteers clean, sort, and package the glasses. Most of the recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the most impact.
If you have used eyeglasses you no longer need, you can donate them now to your local Lions club. Children's glasses are especially needed. You can drop off your old eyeglasses at the Downtown Holiday Inn at Noon on Monday during our weekly meetings.
You can drop off glasses at the customer service desk of any Sioux Falls Lewis Drug store, at Nelson and Nelson CPA's on 1701 S Minnesota Ave, or at the South Dakota Lions Foundation office at 3920 S. Western Avenue, Suite 2, Sioux Falls, SD 57105.
