If you’ve ever wondered what to do with the old prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses that you have stashed in your drawer?
If you’re not going to wear them, you could give the glasses to the Seal Beach Lions Club for their Recycle for Sight Program.
Throughout the month of October, the Seal Beach Lions Club is collecting unwanted eye wear for distribution to those in need both here in California and in developing countries, where the people often cannot afford the eye care they need, and clear vision is merely a dream.
Your old eyeglasses can help turn someone’s dream into a reality.
To donate used eyeglasses, place them in specially marked Lions Recycle for Sight collection bins located in Seal Beach at the Leisure World Health Center, Baytown Realty, Seal Beach Eyes, Tropical Juice, Leisure World US Bank, and both the PCH and Seal Beach Blvd. locations of The UPS Store.
The Lions recycling mailbox will be at the pier for Wag ‘n Walk on Sept. 29 and again on Oct. 7 during the Founders Day Concert.
Lions also recycle hearing aids. For more information, contact Lion Cathy Newton at (310) 377-8955.
