Recap by Bill Taubman, WI Lions Mission Chair
Every year, numerous Lions head to countries south of our borders with used eyeglasses from our Eyeglass Recycling Center in Rosholt, donated fire trucks, ambulances and school buses gathered by Lions Clubs around the state, and medical and school supplies such as hospital beds and school desks. These item are given freely to Lions Clubs in foreign lands that distribute them to needy schools, orphanages and cities. While on a mission, thousands of used eyeglasses are given out to local residents who probably have never had a pair of glasses in their life.
Materials taken come from donations accumulated throughout the state. The used glasses are collected by Wisconsin Lions and processed through the Eyeglass Recycling Center located at the Wisconsin Lions Camp in Rosholt.
Wisconsin Missions is also teaming up with the ALERT program. Lions are willing to travel to help people who have experienced a disaster such as the recent hurricane in Texas. If you would like to become a volunteer, get the sign up form here: ALERT application »
