Thank you for supporting Recycle for Sight
The Waldorf Lions Club would like to thank the community for supporting Lions Recycle For Sight used eyeglasses collection program. Over the past several years through your support, we collected more than 80,000 pairs of eyeglasses to be processed for use by the poor in developing countries. The glasses are taken to a Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center where they are cleaned, categorized by prescription and prepared for distribution by Lions and other groups.
In many developing countries eyeglasses are unaffordable or unattainable leaving many people unable to earn a living or attend school because of poor vision. While this great need for eyeglasses exists many of us may have perfectly good used eyeglasses tucked away at home in drawers or closets. With continuing community support the Waldorf Lions Club through the Lions International Recycle For Sight Program can match-up those old, unwanted eyeglasses with a child or adult in a developing country to bring them the joy of improved vision.
The Waldorf Lions Club would like to express its appreciation to those local businesses and community centers that serve as eyeglass drop-off centers including Charles County Public Library (Waldorf Branch), Galleria Beauty Salon & Spa, Century 21 Realtors, Doctors On Sight, For Eyes Optical, Jones Pembrooke Opticians, Northgate Pharmacy, Pearlman Foot Care Center, Sterling Optical, Walmart Vision Center, Weinstein Eye Associates, Re/Max 100 Realtors, Mom’s Organic Market, Go Green Thrift Store, and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8810.
People who would like to donate their unwanted eyeglasses can leave them at any of the above mentioned drop-off centers.
Thanks again for helping Lions bring the joy of improved vision to so many in need.
