You might meet them in a main street store, barber shop or church. They are not movie stars or super rich. They are neighbors, active retirees and hardworking community volunteers.
It’s not all work and no play at the Sun Lakes Breakfast Lions Club monthly eye glass cleaning in the Arts and Crafts Room at Sun Lakes Country Club on the second Thursday of the month from 5:15 to 7:00 p.m.
Lions and community volunteers have fun while sorting and cleaning glasses. The busy recycling center has sorted through 300 thousand eyeglasses, reclaiming more than 30,000 pairs for distribution in 40 nations.
United in a common goal, they transform pile after pile of donated, used, discarded and unwanted eyeglasses. They make perfectly useable eyewear as gifts for the world’s poor.
