REQUEST FOR USED EYEGLASSES
Ever wondered what to do with your used eyeglasses? The Canadian Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centre (CLERC) collects used eyeglasses where volunteers clean, sanitize, print prescriptions, package, then ship them to over 80 countries where people can’t afford to purchase eyeglasses. To donate your used eyeglasses or sunglasses, please drop them off (without the case) in the Lions Club box near the bulletin board in the gathering area. Used hearing aids are also collected since they are in huge demand worldwide. For more information, please visit www.clerc.ca.
