Collecting Used Eyeglasses and Preparing for Eye Care Projects
(every First and Third Monday of the Month)
Donate Glasses to TWECS
Collecting used eyeglasses and preparing for eye care projects in the Third World is the focus of TWECS.
TWECS teams travel to developing countries and provide basic eye care and distribute recycled eyeglasses to the poor.
Through the passage of many hands in eye clinics, optical stores, churches, and service clubs like the Lions Clubs, Rotary Clubs and the Knights of Columbus, donated eyeglasses reach the TWECS warehouse. A space generously donated by the Burnaby-Lougheed Lions Club to accommodate the Monday night volunteers and the tens of thousands of used eyeglasses.
Help us process the newly arrived glasses. We meet at 6:30pm every First and Third Monday of the month (except Statutory holidays) in the basement of Burnaby-Lougheed Lions Club at: 7420 Mulberry in Burnaby off 16th Ave and Cariboo Rd. Underground parking available on stalls marked "L".
