Ethan O’Keefe, Steve Zimmet’s grandson, is collecting used glasses to donate them to Lions Club International for his Bar Mitzvah project.
Lions Club takes the used glasses and cleans and sanitizes them and then ships them to countries where people can’t afford glasses. By donating glasses you are helping people who can’t afford glasses see better.
The Lions Club accepts prescription glasses, readers, safety glasses, and sunglasses. Even glasses with scratches are accepted and frames with no lenses. Those can be reused and recycled.
You can drop off your used glasses at a bin located in the shul.
If you have questions, please email the office.
