Greensburg Lions Club recycles for sight

GREENSBURG – The Greensburg Lions are asking people to look through dresser drawers and closets for used eyeglasses and donate them to the Lions Recycle for Sight program.

The Lions Club collects used prescription eyeglasses and prescription and non-prescription sunglasses as part of a unique recycling program. The collected glasses will be cleaned and prepared for distribution in developing countries where eye care is often not affordable or inaccessible.

“We need everyone to donate their used eyeglasses,” said Ivan Nading, project chairman.

In most developing countries, an eye exam can cost as much as one month’s wages and a single eye doctor may serve a community of hundreds or thousands of people.

To donate used glasses (including sunglasses and reading glasses) place them in specially-marked Lions Recycle for Sight boxes located at Walmart, Dr. Weigel and Lohmueller, 223 E. Washington; Dr. Henry, 825 N. Lincoln; Dr. Dooley, 1204 N.Lincoln; Dr.Welage, 946 E. main; the Greensburg-Decatur County Public Library and First Baptist church, 209 West Washington Street.

The Greensburg Lions Club has 39 members and the club meets at 6:30 p.m. the second and fourth Monday of each month at the Decatur County REMC building.

Lions Clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.

For information or to get involved with the Greensburg Lions Club, please contact Ann Lindsay, membership chairman at 663-5393 or at greensburglions@yahoo.com.

Lions Club International is the world’s largest service club organization with more than 1.3 million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in 205 countries and geographical areas around the world. Since 1917, Lions Clubs have aided the blind and visually impaired and made a strong commitment to community service and serving youth throughout the world.
