Summit County donates eyeglasses to those in need
December 1, 2005
Summit Recycling Project wishes to thank all of those that participated in the eyeglass recycling collection event in October and November. Thanks to their efforts, a total of 66 glasses were collected in Summit County alone. These eyeglasses were turned into Sunglass Hut in Dillon as part of Give the Gift of Sight, a charitable program sponsored by LensCrafters, their affiliates and Lions Clubs International and coordinated locally by Summit Recycling Project. The glasses will be cleaned, sorted and distributed to people in need in developing countries throughout the world. Glasses are accepted for donation year-round at the Sunglass Hut in Dillon for those who missed the annual event.
