We can recycle your eye glasses
You can help us and help others in a very easy meaningful way by donating your old or no longer used glasses. The Lions organization has gained worldwide recognition for our work to improve sight. It began in 1925 when Helen Keller challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness". The Lions accepted, and today, sight programs remain one of our defining causes.
Save your glasses and give them to any Lions Club member you
know or drop them off at the following locations:
Los Gatos Eye Care,15563 Union Ave., (near Safeway)
Sorci Pharmacy, 15714 Los Gatos Blvd., El Gato shopping Center
Los Gatos Barber Shop, El Gato Shopping Center at Los Gatos Blvd.
and Los Gatos Almaden Rd.
.....or drop them off at one our annual White Cane Days collection locations on October 4 -5, 2012. More locations will be updated.
Santa Clara County Blind Center
The center provides a wide range of valuable services for the sight impaired, including training, education and programs. To raise money and help support the center, Lions Club members and volunteers contribute their time and work at the Blind Center Bingo. This is fun, social entertainment for the community while raising money for an important cause. All proceeds go directly to the Blind Center.
Lions Club members....we need your help. The Los Gatos Lions work the first Monday of each month from 6:30 to 10:00 pm. Contact Lion Chris Morris if you can work. Bingo takes place every Monday and Wednesday night and is open to the public. The Blind Center Bingo games are located at the American Legion Hall, 2120 Walsh Ave., Santa Clara, CA.
