Worldwide Week of Service in Sight

October 4-10 is Lions Worldwide Week of Service to Sight.  What is your Club doing to eliminate preventable blindness and bring awareness and improve sight in your community?
Lion Mike Norton, 2014
The two Juneau Clubs are having their annual Recycle for Sight community drive on Saturday, October 10.  This is where we ask the Juneau community to sort through their dresser drawers, desks, car glove boxes, boats, closets, purses, etc., and bring their unwanted eyeglasses to be recycled.

Every year this collection drive is a big success.  We will have our booth set up at the Nugget Mall and will also offer free vision screening and share about our financial assistance program for those who can't afford an eye exam or eyeglasses.

This is in addition to the collection boxes we have in every eyecare center in Juneau.  Every year we deliver thousands of eyeglasses to the Aurora Borealis Recycle Center in the North Pole.
