Eyeglass Recycling

A major service project of the Lions of the world is to collect used eyeglasses for distribution to people in foreign countries.  Since it is not allowed to distribute used eyeglasses in the United States, Lions either take or ship glasses to foreign countries on a regular basis. 

The Wisconsin Lions have an Eyeglass Recycling Center located at the Wisconsin Lions Camp in Rosholt. The Lions collect about a million pairs of glasses each year that get distributed around the world.  Lions from Wisconsin travel to Mexico and the Caribbean islands on missions to distribute these glasses.

Lions also collect used hearing aids.  These used aids are then returned to our supplier for credit to purchase new hearing aids for needy Wisconsin residents.
