A Pair of Eyeglasses Can Change Another Person's Life!

May 08, 2017

lions_recycle_sight.jpgA pair of eyeglasses can change another person's life!  Our Transformers Club has collaborated with the Lions Club of Winnipeg in collecting used prescription eyeglasses.  If you have used eyeglasses (prescription, reading glasses and/or sunglasses) you no longer need, please donate them now! Children's glasses are especially needed.

The glasses will be sent to the Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centre in Calgary where volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength, do minor repairs and package the glasses. Recycled glasses are distributed to people in need in low and middle income communities, mainly to third world countries where they will have the greatest impact.

Donations are being accepted at the office until the end of May!
