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. Glasses may be dropped off at participating Safeway Pharmacies and at many other eyeglass collection sites around the state. See locations listed on our website http://www.olshf.org/drop-off-sites/. All collected eyeglasses are delivered to the LERC in 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.
Processed glasses are then warehoused at the LERC in Northwest Portland and are available for groups (both Lions and non-Lions) to request for eyeglass missions. The Lions of MD-36 are committed to providing sight and hearing assistance to the residents in Oregon as well as to those in need in developing nations.
