Cornell Club of Oregon – Cornell Cares-OLSHF Eye Glass Sorting Party
October 19, 2019 @ 9:00 am
Location: Portland, OR
Saturday, October 19, 2019
There will be two sessions offered: 9am -11am and 12pm – 2pm.
Oregon has one of 19 Lions Club eyeglass recycling centers in the world. Glasses are collected from around the state (around 100k each year) and a local foundation, the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation, stores the glasses in a warehouse. These glasses are sorted and then those that can be reused on sight mission trips are cleaned, calibrated and packaged up by the ladies in the paraoptimetric program at Coffee Creek Correctional. This event would be an eye glass sorting party and all ages are welcome to attend.
This event is a joint event with local Lions Clubs and other community partners so volunteers of all different ages and backgrounds will be participating. Families welcome!
There will be two sessions offered: 9am -11am and 12pm – 2pm. Volunteers can choose to attend whichever session is most appealing to them.
Limited to 15 volunteers per session.
