Eyeglass Collection

Used eyeglasses may be deposited in one of our two Lyme-Old Lyme Lions Eyeglass Collection Boxes. Our newest location is a box inside of the Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library, and available during the hours the library is open. Our second box is located in the lobby of All Pro Auto in Old Lyme at 147 Boston Post Rd., which is open from 7 am-7pm Monday through Friday.  Our Lions Club welcomes your donation of eye glasses at any time of the year!  The 28th Annual Journey for Sight & Eyeglass Extravaganza was held on May 6, 2023, at McCooks Point Park and Boardwalk in beautiful Niantic! New Eyes for the Needy, a non-profit organization cleans, recycles and sends the glasses that the Lions Clubs collect overseas to developing nations. This past year, the Lyme-Old Lyme Lions Club collected and donated 146 pairs of eyeglasses!
