AABANY and the Prosecutors’ Committee is lending a hand to both Asian Women In Business (AWIB) and EYEsee to collect old eyeglasses for distribution to visually impaired persons in the Third World.
EYEsee describes what donations are being sought – any pair of old eyeglasses, prescription or non-prescription, sunglasses or not, even clip-ons! There is a special need for children’s eyeglasses.
There will be a box the Annual Dinner registration table where eyeglasses can be simply dropped off, so if you are attending, please bring your donation to the Dinner or give your donation to a colleague or friend who is attending so that he/she can drop it off on your behalf. Here’s hoping that we can help out this worthy cause!
