Suffolk County Community College 5th Annual EYEGLASS DRIVE

Give the Gift of Sight


In the western world, we take vision for granted  !!!  

We think nothing of spending hundreds of dollars for eyeglasses, contact lenses or corrective eye surgery. Good eyesight for us is essential as it affects every aspect of our waking lives.

It is equally essential for hundreds of millions of people in developing world countries who need glasses but don’t have them. Poor eyesight for them can mean the difference between working and not working, gathering enough food or going hungry, being able to read or remaining illiterate.

13 Million Children around the world need glasses. Many of these children risk missing their education because they cannot see well enough to learn    :  (

Imagine yourself with blurred vision…all day long….all month long…all year long.       :  (

YOU get the picture!  SO WHAT CAN YOU DO ???   While  you are SPRING cleaning,  when you find those old glasses that you usually toss back into the draw  (for emergencies) … pick them up and send them to US so we can help some of the half billion people of all ages to be able to have SIGHT !!

You can send your used (but not broken) eyewear to me at the address below.  Please do NOT send eye glass cases.  Just wrap in a bubble wrap or a paper towel- mark your package FRAGILE and send to:
