On Friday, Postal Service letter carriers in San Diego will pick up mail and eyeglasses from your mailbox for the 10th Annual Recycle for Sight eyeglass collection with the Lions Club International.
Leave old, unneeded eyeglasses, sunglasses, readers and children's eyeglasses in a plastic bag in your mailbox. Mail carriers will collect them for patients around the world who need corrective lenses.
Lions Club volunteers will sterilize calibrate and distribute your donation. Over the past nine years, letter carriers collected more than 100,000 pair of donated glasses, according to the U.S. Postal Service.
