Lions Need Glasses

Sight Night Volunteers For Lions Club Trick or Treat for Specs


Whether big or small, fashionably in or out, Lions Club members and helpers will collect glasses to be recycled and sent to developing countries where many people can’t afford them. We also accept used cellphones and hearing aids.

If no one comes to your house, have no fear. Used eyeglasses can be dropped off year-round at the Goleta, Montecito, or downtown libraries. Or, call the Lions Sight and Hearing Center at Cottage Hospital Eye Center, 569-8264 for a location near you.
