The Wellness Center is collecting used eyeglasses you no longer need. Glasses will be sent to the West Kauai Lions Club. From there, they will be sent to regional Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers (LERCs). The LERC volunteers clean, sort by prescription strength, package, and distribute to people in need worldwide.
Reading and sunglasses with plastic and/or metal frames and, most importantly, children's glasses will be accepted. If you would like to donate a pair of your unused glasses, please drop them off in the Lions box at the Wellness Center, place them in the Wellness Center mailbox in the business office, or call me and I will come and get them from you (245-8307).
