Eyeglass Collection

Used eyeglasses may be deposited in our Lyme-Old Lyme Lions Eyeglass Collection Box, which is located in the lobby of the Old Lyme Post Office on Halls Road, Old Lyme. Lion George Anderson boxes them up and sends them to New Eyes for the Needy, a non-profit organization that cleans, recycles and sends the glasses overseas to developing nations. In the last year, Lions have sent off more than 180 pairs of eyeglasses.
