11th Annual Recycle for Sight Starts Friday in San Diego
The 11th annual Recycle for Sight event will take place Friday, September 6th in the San Diego area, thanks to the efforts of local postal carriers and Lions Club International. Organizers are asking all San Diego area residents to drop old or unwanted eyeglasses in their mailboxes, to be picked up, sterilized and calibrated by Lions Club volunteers and distributed to needy patients all over the world, many of whom will be seeing clearly for the first time in their lives. The Recycle for Sight Program has collected and distributed more than 100,000 pairs of donated glasses in its first ten years. If glasses are placed in a mailbox on Friday and no mail is delivered to that address, they will be picked up the next time the address receives mail.
