Please donate your old eyeglasses!

Do you have old pairs of eyeglasses you no longer use? The Enumclaw Lions Club has an eyeglasses donation box at the Black Diamond Community Center. Together we are collecting clean and gently used eyeglasses for people in remote areas of developing countries. The glasses will be examined and packaged by volunteer eye doctors who will sort them for the different prescription needs. This is an easy and wonderful opportunity for you to donate to a much-needed cause. The Black Diamond Community Center is located at 31605 Third Ave (SR 169) in Black Diamond.  The Community Center is open Monday thru Thursday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
