Huntsville Eyeglass Collection Day

On April 14, 2018, the Huntsville Lions Club Is collecting eyeglasses and contact lenses between thee hours of 10 am to 2 pm at Brookshire Brothers. Huntsville Lions also have collection boxes at locations listed below.

 

Lions worldwide help to conserve sight by providing usable eyeglasses and contact lenses to children and adults throughout the world. An estimated120 million people are impaired because of uncorrected refractive errors ( far and near sightedness). Eyeglasses and contact lenses are one way to correct this problem. The eyeglasses are collection and sent to recycle centers where they are cleaned and prescription strength checked, and then distributed to low and middle income communities where they will have the greatest impact. You can help the Lions Club by donating those unused eyeglasses and contact lenses.
