Unclaimed Baggage is one of the largest donors to the Lions Club in the world. Hundreds of thousands of eyeglasses have been provided to their Sight First program over the last several decades.
Glasses collected by Lions Club are sent to one of their 17 eyeglass recycling centers. At the centers, volunteers prepare the glasses for distribution to humanitarian eye clinics worldwide.

Unclaimed Baggage proudly partners with the following non-profit organizations:
