With the simple motto of " We Serve "
BLACKSBURG Lions Recycle for Sight Program ...
Last fall the Blacksburg Breakfast Lions Club began collection of glasses in several locations in Blacksburg. Our first collection netted 191 glasses and 16 prescription sunglasses. We just had our largest collection of 233 glasses and 32 prescription sunglasses.
Glasses are collected and brought to Roanoke Lions Club where they are sanitized, then prescriptions are read, and the glasses added to the Lions inventory. From there they are distributed to medical and optical missions worldwide. Even damaged, unusable glasses are recycled for metal or scrap. Readers can be recycled in the United States.
