Our club has received three or more boxes for collecting used eyeglasses in our community. The aim is to collect 2,020 pairs of glasses, in time for the 2020 Rotary District Conference. The glasses will be sent to the Third World Eye Care Society based in the Vancouver area.
 
Once any one of our eyeglasses collection boxes is full, we are asked to store the collected eyeglasses in sturdy cardboard boxes or Rubbermaid tubs and return the empty collection box to its location to collect more.
 
If there is no place to store the eyeglasses, the Third World Eye Care Society will store them until the conference. We can send them to 2020 Vision Conference Chair, Tom Smith, and he will get them to the Society's warehouse. 
 
Let's all work together and fill the boxes then bring them to the conference, April 24 to 26 in Vancouver.  It will make a great photo opportunity for all of us to use.
 
Here is a brief video to explain more about the project. [follow this link}
