Our tax I.D. Number is 81-3035171.  One hundred percent of all donations go to our program.

Monetary donations may be sent to: 

Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center of Northern Virginia, Inc.
919 South Monroe Street
Arlington, VA 22204

Eyeglasses may be dropped off at the Recycling Center located at 919 South Monroe Street, Arlington, Virginia and placed in the cabinet near the front door. Please leave a note with the donor's name, address and telephone number so we may send an acknowledgement and receipt.

You can also donate eyeglasses by depositing them in a Lions Club collection box at various locations within the area, by mailing them to the Center, or by dropping them off at the Center.  We also recycle hearing aids and forward them on to the Lions Hearing Aid Bank Foundation.

If shipping by UPS or FedEx, please indicate a “shipper’s release,” that is, instructions to UPS or FedEx to deliver the package without requiring a signature.

Donations can be dropped-off at any time.

If no one is at the Center, leave your donation in the cabinet at the door.  Please put a note in your donation identifying the donor.

We appreciate each donation we receive and thank all of you who have supported this project.

Thank you!
