Building a better community every day!
There is now an eyeglass donation bin at the Valley View Sewer District office (3460 S 148th St., just west of Tukwila Intl. Blvd.). The office is open weekdays 8 am to 5 pm.
Hi, Pam, please tell me more. I have old prescription eyeglasses..that sort of thing. I don't understand how that might be of benefit to anyone.
Not sure of the details but I believe charities collect the glasses for distribution to the needy in developing countries. Oh, I just did a search and found info at http://www.lionsclubs.org/EN/our-work/sight-programs/eyeglass-recyc... I can't recall the name of the charity on the bin at the sewer district but it likely is the Lions Club -- they've been doing this for years. I know some retail eyeglass stores also have the bins, but I never remember to collect the old ones that are hiding around the house in the back of drawers.
