For their latest community service project, Del Sol Lions gathered 250-plus pairs of used eyeglasses through its “Recycling for Sight” project with 10 collection bins in Del Mar, Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe. The club then sorted the used glasses into categories for reuse by those less fortunate. Under the guidance of Lions Past District Governor Alice Tana, 10 Del Sol Lions Club members spend a weekend morning preparing these collected glasses for reuse.
