2nd Grade Eyeglass Recycling Project



Changing Lives, One Pair at a Time

In just about any dresser drawer, one can find a pair of eyeglasses that are no longer being used. That same pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life.

Lions Recycle for Sight

That's why our 2nd grade classes are helping the Brevard County Lion’s Club- Lions Recycle for Sight program.  Everyone can help.

Throughout the year, Lions collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers.  There, volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses.  Most of the recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact.

How You Can Help

If you have used eyeglasses you no longer need, please donate them.  Lions accept prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses and plastic and metal frames.  Children's glasses are especially needed. 

Starting from Monday, February 14th until Friday, March 25th send in old eyeglasses to your child’s classroom teacher.  The class that collects the most donated pairs of glasses will win a popsicle party towards the end of the year!  Ask your grandparents, neighbors, or people at your church.  It’s that simple to help people in need!
