Clubs to collect used eyeglasses

The Lions Clubs on Maui, as part of the “Lions in Sight” statewide project, will be collecting used eyeglasses and hearing aids at the Walmart Vision Center in Kahului on Saturday.

Donations can be dropped off in specially marked “Lions Recycle For Sight” collection boxes at the Vision Center.

Lions Club members are asking people, as they do their spring cleaning, to look through dresser drawers and closets for used eyeglasses and hearing aids and donate them to the program.

The glasses will be cleaned, categorized by prescription and distributed to those in need within developing countries where eye care is often unaffordable and inaccessible. The hearing aids will be cleaned, repaired and tested for local distribution.
