The Osborn Retirement Community and the Rye City Lions Club are partnering again in March to collect unneeded eyeglasses for recycling. Eyeglasses will be collected every Tuesday in March at Miriam’s Attic, The Osborn’s Resale Shop, between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. The Osborn is located at 101 Theall Road in Rye.
The Rye City Lions Club will deliver the eyeglasses to New Eyes for the Needy, a non-profit, non-sectarian volunteer organization, in Short Hills, New Jersey. The glasses are sorted and prepared for distribution by hundreds of adult and student volunteers and then distributed free of charge to several hundred thousand poor and under-privileged people in developing countries around the world. New Eyes for The Needy also purchases new eyeglasses for poor children and adults in the United States and distributes them in partnership with social service agencies and optical dispensers across the country.
Please help by dropping off your unneeded eyeglasses any Tuesday in March at Miriam’s Attic at The Osborn between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm. For additional information, please contact Susan Olson at 925-8372 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
