February 23, 2024 (Lemon Grove) -- The Lemon Grove Lions Club is always actively collecting gently used reusable eyeglasses for the Lions Club International Recycle for Sight Program.


Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions of people living in low and middle-income areas lack access to basic eye care services. The Lions Club recognizes the urgent need for corrective lenses and collects usable eyeglasses in their communities. The lack of eyeglasses denies children and adults opportunities for education, employment, and a better quality of life. 


Various types of eyeglasses for children and adults are needed, including both weak and strong prescriptions. Additionally, reading glasses and non-prescription sunglasses are also in demand. 


If you have any gently used, reusable eyeglasses, consider giving them a new purpose by helping someone in need. Your donation can provide clarity and open more opportunities for individuals.  To donate, please contact Ken Burke 619-469-7350, President of the Lemon Grove Lions club.
