Organization Information

Mission Statement

We send the gift of clear vision to needy people around the world.


Lions, Leos, and others collect used eyeglassess and turn them over to the Center to be cleaned, have their prescriptions determined, and packaged for giving free to Lions and other charities who take them to those who need them. Volunteers wash the eyeglasses, or use special easy to use machines to read and record the prescription, or sort and box them for distribution. It is very light labor and performed indoors in an air condition and heated space.
