You can make a difference for a child or adult in a poor country by helping to get much needed eyeglasses that could mean the difference for a child that cannot read in school, or a parent that cannot work and take care of their family. Thousands of eyeglasses are already donated, just waiting to be cleaned, labeled, and packaged so that they can be recycled and put to great use!
Mitsy Kit partners with the Lowell Lions Club to help process donated eyeglasses in our 99 Church street location. We have a simple machine that can be operated by one person at a time to read the eyeglass strength, and a simple process to wash and dry the glasses before packaging with strength labels.
This is a great opportunity for an easy but highly impactful activity that could be done with adults and children together as a great community service activity. Scheduling is flexible, done at your convenience during the timeframes listed below. Please contact me to let me know your schedule availability and get started right away to help change lives for the better. You can make a difference across the globe!
