|Eyeglasses Collected for "Recycle for Sight" shipped to Lions Recycling Centre in Calgary|
On Monday October 26, 2020 Lion Bob Gullins of Lakeshore Lions Club, Lion Wayne Hoey and another Lion from the Weston Lions Club, helped PDG Lion Dam Dako & PDG Lion Jeffrey Friedman pack four vans with 137 boxes containing 26,603 pairs of used eyeglasses, frames and loose lenses.
The glasses where then driven to Day & Ross Trucking in Brampton, where they were then transported to our Canadian Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Our thanks to the District's clubs that participate in this project for the glasses they collected, thanks as well to the volunteers who helped count and pack all of these boxes.
Readers: If you have used eyeglasses to donate visit www.recycleforsight.ca for your closest collection point.

Each year our Lions Club brings together the beneficiaries of our funding to receive our financial support at this one event.
Our Club raises our funds through running our "Lions Farmers Market", by running Bingos and through our other fundraising efforts.
