October 2017 – Lions Club Recycle for Sight Eyeglasses Drive
During the month of October, TIS is collecting used eyeglasses for people in need around the world. Many people in developing countries cannot afford, or do not have access to, basic eyecare or eyeglasses necessary for clear sight. The Lions Club has a simple solution: Gather up your old prescription glasses and donate them. We will have collection boxes at our Temecula and San Diego offices. Please drop in and drop off your old glasses. You can also find a donation location near you by visiting http://www.lionsclub.org.
The mission of the Lions Club Recycle for Sight Program is to promote the collection of used eyeglasses for recycling and use in developing nations worldwide, and to provide no-cost primary eyecare to visually-challenge, low-income citizens in economically disadvantaged countries. The Lions Club, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, believes that prescription eyeglasses contribute not only to the improvement of the quality of life for those of all ages, but can also aid in the process of national development. They are dedicated to bringing basic eyecare and eyeglasses to a world of people in need. Glasses can be donated beginning now until November 3. Thanks for your help!
