Milford Lions seeking eyeglasses
Thursday, March 7, 2013
MILFORD – The Milford Lions Club recently placed a wooden bin at the town Transfer Station in an effort to collect more lightly used eyeglasses.
For many years, Lions clubs across the country have placed cardboard boxes in many locations for their community to donate and dispose of lightly used eyeglasses to be recycled for further use in developing countries in need.
In the past six months alone, close to 1,000
eyeglasses have been collected.
In Milford, these boxes can still be found at several locations, which include:
Philip S. Aubrey, Optometrist, 81 Mont Vernon St.; Nashua Eye & Associates, 555 Nashua St.
Also, People’s United Bank, 28 Jones Road; Shaw’s Supermarket, 586 Nashua St.; Stop & Shop, 601 Nashua St.Market Basket, 21 Jones Road; Wadleigh Public Library, 49 Nashua St., and the U.S. Post Office, 12 Mont Vernon St.
As part of an Eagle Scout service project, a young man from Bedford, decided to continue past his successful recycling environ project by building and supplying Lions clubs in area towns including Milford with a wooden recycling bin to also be used for the collection of eyeglasses.
One of these wooden bins has been placed at the Milford Transfer station on North River Road for the public’s use and convenience.
