Colchester Lions Recycle Eye Glasses
Throughout the year, Colchester Lions collect used eyeglasses and deliver them to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers. These glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries. Lions accept prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses, plastic and metal frames. Children's glasses are especially needed. Drop off locations can be found at : Cragin Memorial Library, Colchester Senior Center, Valvoline, Savings Institute Bank & Trust, Norwich Ophthalmology Group and Colchester Eye Care.
