You Can Donate Used Eyeglasses

There is a need for used, unwanted, or discarded eyeglasses.  Volunteer professional optometrist and support personnel travel to third world countries to fit and distribute eyeglasses to those in need.  You can bring those old eyeglasses to any RTO function, drop off at Dr. Darrell Stewart at 149 Grand Ave. W. (just past the Pines) in Chatham, or call Hank Lalonde at 519 351-7384 to arrange for pick up.  If you’re like me, you have glasses lying around and never knew they could be recycled.  Thanks for your help.
