This year the City of Modesto, in collaboration with Stanislaus County will be collecting eyeglasses in all conditions for people in need all over the world. We are partnering with the non-profit organization Lions In Sight who will refurbish the eyeglasses and distribute them to various charities and give the gift of better sight to so many people.

Please take time to gather your eyeglasses and bring to any one of our many collections sites located in Modesto and Stanislaus County. Your contributions can truly make a difference! Look for donation cans at each floor of 1010 10th Street in downtown Modesto, all Stanislaus County Libraries, The State Theatre of Modesto and local supporting businesses. 

For more information in the City of Modesto, please contact the Solid Waste Division at 209-577-5495 or email Vicki Rice.

For more information in Stanislaus County, please contact Environmental Resources at 209-525-6700 or email Denise London or Janice McClendon.
