SPONSOR A COLLECTION DRIVE

We are delighted you are interested in planning a Collection Drive of used eyeglasses and other items for New Eyes for the Needy. This is a truly worthwhile service project for any size organization, including civic clubs, lodges, businesses, religious groups and Scout troops. A collection drive is also a wonderful Eagle Scout/Girl Guide project.

Collection Drives are a great way to recycle items that people can no longer use but which are too valuable to throw away. It is also a good feeling knowing that those items will be used to improve the vision of the poor in the United States and overseas.

To get started selection some collection sites. Spread the word via radio and TV public announcments and family members and friends. Check lost and found departments for unclaimed glasses and hearing aids. When your drive end, ship your collected items to:

New Eyes for the Needy
