Imagine a World where everyone can see! Please donate no longer needed eyeglasses and sunglasses to Imagine at 1 East Broad Street in Westfield for this month’s Resilience Service Project conducted by Imagine participants. Your used glasses will be donated to New-Eyes for the Needy, a non-profit located in Short Hills, NJ that collects and distributes used eye glasses to those in need nationally and internationally; in 2014-2015 alone, New Eyes helped 6,668 U.S. residents in need and recycled 250,000 glasses in 21 developing countries.
Imagine’s vision is to transform grief, trauma and loss into resilience, empathy and compassion. One way build resilience is to be of service and support others. When the glasses collection is completed in August, Imagine participants, staff and volunteers will take a trip to New Eyes’ center to sort, label and test glasses for delivery overseas. Please drop off your glasses by Aug. 1. Questions? Contact Imagine at 908-264-3100 or firstname.lastname@example.org
