Knights of Columbus – New Eyes for the Needy Collection
The members of the Chief Justice White Council are collecting old eyeglasses to donate to New Eyes for the Needy. Last year, the Knights collected over 500 pair of gently used eyeglasses, which were then provided to those most in need. Donated eyeglasses in good condition are sent to medical missions and international charities for distribution to the poor in developing nations. New Eyes has also provided prescription glasses for over 11,000,000 people in the United States.
The Knights have placed a donation box in the rear of the church for your donations of unused eyeglasses, as well as sunglasses. The collection drive will run from February through April.
