Sight Night Success

If you put a pair of glasses in your mailbox this Halloween, the Lions Club wants to say thank you...Sight Night was a huge success.

Last year, Lubbock mail carriers collected 5,500 pairs of glasses from mail boxes across the city as part of their annual Halloween fundraiser. This year, the number of eyeglasses rounded up by mail carriers in Lubbock alone jumped to 8,094.

Now, those glasses are on their way to a recycling center in Midland. From there, your restored glasses will be shipped to third world countries to provide the gift of sight to many who have been living in a blur.

Sight Night is a combined effort of the Lions Club, the post office and Lens Crafters. Thanks to you it's getting bigger every year.
