Kicking Off the Eyeglass Collection Drive!

Every great journey begins with one small step, right? Thanks to the quick action of University of Pittsburgh Lion Heather Tellez and the generosity of her hometown church, we have started off our collection with more than 80 pairs of eyeglasses! Additionally, our first collection box was taken to its new home at the UPMC Eye Center Eye Care and Optical on Forbes Avenue. If you're in the Oakland area and have glasses to donate, you can drop them off there or contact Catherine D'Ardenne ( Make sure to check back for an updated list of collection locations in the next couple of days!


Dropping of eye glasses

Great job! I have a whole box of eyeglasses I need to drop off. Did we decide on a place to store the glasses?
