On December 11th, 2018, Florence Lion Eddie Walter volunteered to make a lengthy drive to Upland, Indiana to deliver over 6,000 pairs of used eyeglasses and 600 pairs of non-prescription sunglasses to the International Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center operated by the members of the Upland Lions Club.



These glasses were donated by the Northern Kentucky community to the various Northern Kentucky Lions Clubs throughout the year. These items will be distributed by Lions International to individuals in third-world countries in areas having little or no medical facilities. With your donated eyewear, these individuals will enjoy an improved quality in vision which they might otherwise never know.


Lion John Chester of the Upland Lions conveys his thanks to the Norhern Kentucky community for their thoguhtful donations. Our thanks to Florence Lion Eddie Walter for his time and expense in getting these glasses on the way to doing good things!


Please donate any re-useable eyeglasses, cases and sunglasses through any Lions Club member.

Lions Clubs Worldwide


There are more than 1.3 million Lions spanning 200 countries, consisting of men and women, young and old, embracing a single cause. We share a common spirit. Since our beginning in 1917, we have been united in a single cause: Helping those less fortunate.


We are tackling tough problems such as blindness and drug abuse as well as spreading diabetes awareness and assisting the deaf, disabled, underprivileged, and the elderly. In fact, whatever the community needs to make life better, we are there to help. Lions assist and serve continually providing aid long after the cameras and media are gone. Annually, Lions provide hundreds of thousands of people in need around the world with eye examinations, eyeglasses, eye surgeries, and visual aids.


All of these assistance programs are made possible with volunteer members donating their time and efforts.
