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.
