If you own eye glasses, you know that they can multiply over the years! You may find them in drawers, bags, and boxes as you tidy. It can be hard to part with them, especially because they are expensive and unique. However, consider how many you truly need and which ones are the current correct prescription for you today.
Did you know that you can donate your eye glasses? Don't just throw them out! Prescription glasses, sunglasses, and other gently used glasses can be donated. Both the lenses and the frames are useful to others.
The Lions Club International has donation boxes in local schools, libraries, and community centers. They provide hearing aids and eyeglasses, health services, and other support to the needy, including school-age children. Check them out here: Lions Club International Website
You can also mail gently used glasses to New Eyes for the Needy. They then send them overseas.

Find a cause that speaks to your heart and give the gift of clear eyesight to someone else. What a blessing to be able to share!
