Feed My Starving Children, Recycling Used Eyeglasses

     The Glendale Heights Barangay Lions had a busy "We Serve" day on June 22, 2013. In the morning, 8 Lions volunteered at the "Feed My Starving Children" facility in Schaumburg, IL processing and packaging healthy meals for the poor children of the world.
     In the afternoon, the group sorted 4 bags of used eyeglasses collected in a strip mall collection station. The Lions sorted and counted 1,184 used eyeglasses, 4 cell phones and 2 hearing aids at the residence of a club officer. The recycled eyeglasses were donated to Lions of Illinois Foundation, the non-profit arm of Lions of Illinois for cleaning and recalibration and later shipped to the third world countries.
