Set Your Sights on Giving: Donate Used Eyeglasses Throughout October
Published on: October 02, 2012
Follow the lead of Monty The Maverick at Lone Star College-Montgomery and donate your used eyeglasses to provide sight for others.
In partnership with Conroe Noon Lions Club, LSC-Montgomery is collecting old or used eyeglasses, lens, frames, and even cell phones throughout the month of October in buckets placed on campus, at Lone Star College-Conroe Center, and at Lone Star College-University Center at Montgomery. As part of the “Lions Recycle for Sight” initiative, the Lions Club will take the donations to recycle or distribute to needy people locally and overseas at no charge.
“Eyeglass collection is one of our main ways of giving to the community,” said Dave Hite, eyeglass committee chairman for the Lions Club. “We’re incredibly grateful that the college is helping us continue to give back to the Conroe area.”
The white distribution buckets are located in the following buildings:
The Commons (Bldg. A) – Student Life desk
Health Science Center (Bldg. B) – near Coffee Grounds
Student Services Center (Bldg. C) – information desk
Library Building (Bldg. F) – circulation desk
General Academic Center (Bldg. G) – near Coffee Grounds
LSC-Conroe Center – front desk
LSC-University Center at Montgomery – front desk
LSC-Montgomery’s Professional Staff Support Association (PSSA) is coordinating this community service project.
“Collaborating with civic groups like the Lions Club helps us all understand the importance of being involved and helping others in need,” said Donna Smith Burns, PSSA community service co-chair. “Exposing students to community service is critical in helping them become even better citizens.”
