A sight to behold: Recycled eyeglasses from Newfoundland changing lives
Old eyewear from Newfoundland making a difference in Haiti and Nicaragua
When Brad Moss took over as chair of the Lions Club District N4 Sight Conservation Committee in 2014, he wasn’t prepared for the vision that greeted him in his predecessor’s garage.
“He opens the door and there’s this mountain of boxes,” said Moss.
Those boxes contained about 10,000 pairs of eyeglasses in need of recycling, and Moss learned there were another 15,000 pairs gathering dust in the basement of the Lions Club in St. John’s.
