The Oregon Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center is sponsored by the Lions of MD-36 in Oregon.
Lions throughout MD-36 collect used eyeglasses year-round. Eyeglass collection boxes can be found statewide or eyeglasses can be dropped off at participating Safeway Pharmacies. All collected eyeglasses are delivered to Portland where they are sorted by volunteers. Glasses are then delivered to the Coffee Creek Correction Facility in Wilsonville, where they are cleaned and calibrated through the Inmate Eyeglass Recycling Program.
Glasses are then warehoused in North Portland and available for groups (Lions and non-Lions) to request for eyeglass missions to developing countries. The Lions of MD-36 are committed to providing sight assistance in Oregon and to those in need in developing nations.
