See Your Way to The Osborn: Eyeglass Drive

Can't see straight with that old pair?

Donate them. The Osborn Retirement Community and the Rye City Lions Club are collecting unneeded eyeglasses for recycling. Have some of those giant 80s and 90s frames in piling up in your sock drawer?

Eyeglasses will be collected every Tuesday in March at Miriam's Attic, The Osborn's Resale Shop, between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm.  The Osborn is located at 101 Theall Road in Rye.

The Rye City Lions Club will deliver the eyeglasses to New Eyes for the Needy, a non-profit, non-sectarian volunteer organization, in Short Hills, New Jersey. The glasses are sorted and prepared for distribution by hundreds of adult and student volunteers and then distributed free of charge to several hundred thousand poor and under-privileged people in developing countries around the world.
