Highway Clean-up

We enjoyed a beautiful, crisp morning for cleaning up our mile of US 60. 

 


  "Re-Cycle for Sight" donation box locations are listed on the "Eyeglass Donation Box Locations page.  We collect eyeglasses, (prescription lens, sunglasses and reading glasses), cell phones and hearing aids.

We thank you in advance. Your donation is a small effort for you but a huge gift to many people in poverty areas of the world.  The club serves as a satellite site for Arizona Lions Eyeglass Recycling Terminal (ALERT).  These eyeglasses are packaged by prescription and provided to Lions medical missions to Mexico and the Philippines to provide sight to those who have no other options.


Globe Lions Club thanks the community for their donations of no-longer-needed eyeglasses.  Lions Dan Guthrey, Barbara Nancarrow, Debbie Guthrey, Ken Hein and Bobbie Ravenkamp recently sorted and cleaned 555+ eyeglasses, readers, sunglasses and cases and sent on to the next club in processing for ALERT.   And, we always have a good time working together in service!
