Donate in 2020 for 20-20 Vision!

February 11, 2020

In 2020 with 20-20 Vision
By Abby Goepfert

Imagine a world without your eyeglasses, trying to work, cook, and brush your teeth. What if I told you that this is an ordinary day for hundreds of people. What if I , also, told you there are children in the world right now who can’t go to school because they can’t see clearly. Sadly, this is all true, but YOU can make a difference by changing these situations.

Mr. Gutbrod’s 5th Grade Class and the Circle-Lex Lions’ Club are collecting no longer used eyeglasses to donate to people in developing countries who can’t afford eyeglasses. Your donated eyeglasses can be dropped off at Blue Heron Elementary or sent through school email to Mr. Gutbrod’s Grade 5 Class. We will be taking collections until the last week in May of this school year.

You can start the new 2020 year by changing the life of someone with your eyeglass donation. A grandma could continue to make clothes again, a mom could cook and care for her children, a father could hold onto a job with better vision, and a child could attend school with clearer vision all because you took your time to send no longer used eyeglasses. Please donate. You could give someone a 2020 with 20-20 vision. Thank you.    

Drop off or mail your no longer used eyeglasses to Blue Heron Elementary, 405 Elm Street, Lino Lakes, MN 55014. Thanks for your support!
