The Idaho Eastern Oregon Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation and the thousands of Lion members from the 70 clubs in Idaho and Eastern Oregon help collect, sort, and distribute used eyeglasses. With the help of humanitarian medical mission teams, the Foundation distributes the used glasses in underdeveloped countries to people who would not otherwise have access to corrective lenses.
Used and unwanted glasses and sunglasses can be donated at the Foundation office, located at 1090 N. Cole Rd, Boise ID 83704 during normal business hours: 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday.
There are also numerous locations around the community who accept used eyeglasses on behalf of the Lions; businesses, hospitals, doctors offices, retail locations, community centers etc. Here is a partial list of donation locations. Please check back for information on new locations.
Hearing Aid Donation
Hearing aids can also be donated at our Foundation office. Other various community organizations, manufacturers and caring individuals donate used and unwanted hearing aids which are then refurbished and distributed back into the community through the Foundations Personal Healthcare Assistance program.
