At the District Advisory meeting this week the Concord Lions submitted 854 pairs of eyeglasses (667 regular and 187 sunglasses) for recycling. The Lions collected the glasses from collection boxes we maintain in Concord and surrounding communities. The glasses will be cleaned, repaired if needed, and the prescriptions determined. Then they will be packaged for delivery to distributions centers, often in third world countries. Thank you all who donated their old glasses – 854 people will be receive the gift of better vision!
