I don't know about you, but I tend to collect stuff.... after all, you never know when you might need that spare set of glasses that is 18 years old!
This is part of a unique program with Lions Clubs International that we call Recycle for Sight.
This unique recycling effort is brought to you by the Juneau Lions Club and the Juneau Mendenhall Flying Lions Club as part of their Joint Sight Conservation Committee. Members from both clubs collect eyeglasses throughout the year and forward them to the recycling center in North Pole where they're cleaned, categories, and distributed around the world. You can read more about the center HERE.
Last year we collected 66 pair of used eyeglasses. We hope that as the community becomes conditioned to watch for our drive, we will start gathering more. We will wait for you.
