According to the World Health Organization, approximately 25 percent of the world's population needs eyeglasses. Globally, one child in four cannot see well enough to learn to read without glasses. Unfortunately, for many, a pair of glasses is both unaffordable and inaccessible. People in some developing countries have been known to walk miles and miles to get the free eyeglasses.

Calabasas residents can help a person in need by donating glasses that are no longer in use. Eyeglasses received are sorted, cleaned, categorized, bagged, and boxed by the International Lions Club in preparation for shipment to developing countries.


Donated eyeglasses may be placed in the collection box at the Calabasas City Hall (map) or at any of the following facilities:
