What to do with old contacts and glasses

26 Jan

Have you ever wondered what you could do with your old glasses or even unopened contacts that you never got around to using before your prescription changed? Various Lion’s Club or community organizations often have a box where you can simply donate your used glasses. Last night while I was going through yet another box of paperwork I was reminded of the Madre Organization. (I had made a donation of contact lenses a few years ago and found the receipt.) Instead of tossing those sealed contacts simply drop them in the mail. Choose to take a few extra minutes out of your day to bless someone else rather than just toss them into the trash.

For more information please visit www.madre.org

Mail contacts or glasses to: MADRE – 121 West 27th Street, #301, New York, NY 10001

      It is nice to know there is a place where they can be send. I think they also send you a receipt so that your donation can be written off your taxes.
