The Lions Recycle For Sight Program
The Aquia Evening Lions asks that people look through dresser drawers and closets for used eyeglasses and donate them to the Lions Recycle For Sight program.
During the entire year, the Aquia Evening Lions Club collects used prescription eyeglasses and prescription and non-prescription sunglasses as part of a unique recycling program. The collected glasses are cleaned and prepared for distribution in developing countries where eye care is often unaffordable and inaccessible.
"We need everyone to donate their used eyeglasses," said club president Florence Mittino . "In most developing countries, an eye exam can cost as much as one months wages and a single eye doctor may serve a community of hundreds of thousands of people."
The donated glasses are shipped to a regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center where they are cleaned, categorized by prescription and prepared for distribution by Lions and other groups.
To donate used glasses (including sunglasses and reading glasses), place them in the specially marked Lions Recycle For Sight collection boxes located at both the Aquia Harbour Property Owners Association office and at Porter Memorial Library near the computer area.
The Aquia Evening Lions Club is comprised of a group of women dedicated to identifying needs within the community and working together to fulfill those needs. The club meets on the fourth Thursday evening of each month at 7:11 p.m. at the Aquia Harbour Country Club. For more information or to get involved with the Aquia Evening Lions Club: Click Here
