TO ALL LIONS WHO COLLECT USED GLASSES
LensCrafters is now collecting ALL used glasses. They are collecting glasses that are in good condition, those missing lenses, those with broken frames and even lenses with no frames at all. They are recycling all glasses and parts of glasses. Please inform the personnel at each location the next time you visit them to pick up glasses. Feel free to make a copy of this notice and hand it to the management at each location.
Thank you for your help in this effort to recycle and help more people get useable glasses.
The Glasses Recycling Committee
-Ed Next month Iíll try to have the list of current collection sites and who is doing the collections at these sites. You can always set up more sites for glasses and hearing aid collection. See Bill Kilbourn for needed equipment and ask your favorite business if you can set one up.
