Eye Glass Recycling
The Highland Village Lions Club is part of the 2E2 Lions District. Since July of 2013 the District 2E2 Eyeglass Recycling Center has processed over 162,000 glasses. Using the glasses collected in District 2E2, we have supplied church and medical missions originating within the district and going to Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Brazil, Peru, Paraguay, Bolivia, Ethiopia, Uganda, Romania, Fiji and the Philippines.
All of this is done with volunteers from Lions clubs, Leos clubs, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, church groups, corporation volunteer groups, high school students and any-one else that wants to spend a few hours helping us provide a better future for those We Serve.
The process of turning the boxes and bags of glasses we receive into usable glasses to improve the lives of those we touch is really a simple one. Learning to sort, wash and read the prescription on glasses can be done in a short time. There are tasks for every skill level and physical ability, everyone can be productive.
Contact us if you or your group would like to be a part of this wonderful outreach.
The Highland Village Lions Club, along with surrounding clubs, has placed eye glass recycling boxes at many convenient locations. Our current locations are the Highland Village City Hall, Lamb of God Church, Welding Eye Care, Walmart Vision & Glasses located in the Walmart Super Center in Highland Village and various locations at the Shops of Highland Village.
