The Floral Park Lions Club is proud to report that 1064 pairs of donated eyeglasses have been collected in its Lions Recycle for Sight Program. After the eyeglasses are refurbished, the like-new eyeglasses will be distributed to people in need in low and middle income communities where they will have the greatest impact. Donating just one pair of glasses can change an adult or child’s life dramatically. The Lions Collection Boxes are available at the Floral Park Village Hall and the Floral Park Public Library.
“Through the generosity and thoughtfulness of local community residents this ongoing program has been extraordinarily successful. The Lions appreciate the donations of eyeglasses that have virtually changed the lives of over one thousand people,” said Jim Whalen, President of the Floral Park Lions Club.
Do you have one or more pairs of glasses that you don’t need? The Lions Collection Boxes are waiting for you. For more information about the Lions Recycle and Sight Program or membership in the local Floral Park Lions Club, call 516-775-6849.
