Lions seek used eyeglasses

The Wisconsin Lions Foundation is looking to reach its goal of collecting 250,000 pairs of used eyeglasses by early May.

Community members are encouraged to drop off used eyeglasses in one of the local Lions Clubs’ collections containers, including the one located in the Sheboygan Falls Municipal Building public parking lot

“Many people don’t realize the impact those old eyeglasses can have,” Sheboygan Evening Lions Club President Andy Giesen said. “When you donate those glasses, the Lions recycle them and fit them to a mother who’s never seen her child’s face or a father who can now work to improve life for his family or a child who can now go to school. Those eyeglasses are truly life-changing and we need you to donate yours today.”

Donated glasses will be shipped to the Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center, located at the Wisconsin Lions Camp in Rosholt.

Once there, the glasses will be sorted, cleaned, categorized by prescription and prepared for distribution.

The Wisconsin Lions Foundation administers the Wisconsin Lions statewide projects (camp, vision screening, hearing program, diabetes education, used eyeglass/hearing aid collection) and is celebrating its 60th year.
