Eyeglass Sorting and Packaging Event
Our Eyesight Screening Campaign in Ecuador is planed August 25 to Sept 6
To outfit our patients properly with eyeglasses from COLERC (Colorado Lions Eyeglasses Recycling Center), we need to sort and pack the eyeglasses in a manner that enables us to work quickly to find the right ones for each person, especially given the number of people we will be seeing. This is an involved process, and we need your help! It will make our work so much easier!
