In recognition of May as Healthy Vision Month, the Q300 Wellness Council, UD & LD Student Councils, and the Q300 Green Team are leading a collection of used prescription eyeglasses (for kids, adults, all ages). These will be donated to Lions Club International, who lead an initiative to prevent avoidable blindness and improve quality of life for people in developing counties who are visually impaired.
We encourage you to look around your home, ask family, friends and neighbors if they have any old eyeglasses to donate to this meaningful cause. Glasses can be sent in to school with your child, to be routed to Ms. Rachel Weiss (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Lower Division. This collection will go on until May 31, 2023.
