The local Lions Club and Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital are currently having a drive and collecting old and unused eyeglasses for the Lions Club International Recycle For Sight program.
Those wishing to donate may bring the eye glasses to the admissions desk at RPMH this week. Glasses will also be collected at the Wednesday lunch and learn program that will feature eye health.
Donated eye glasses are delivered to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers where volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength and package the glasses. Most of the recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact.
