East Hanover, NJ (PressExposure) February 06, 2009 -- GlassesUSA announced a partnership with the Lions Club this week. The partnership will consist of taking used eyeglasses and returned prescription eyeglasses and donating them to the Uniontown Lions Club.
The partnership is a new development for GlassesUSA as it hopes to change the way people view eyecare and eyeglasses. Vision care has long been a luxury in the United States as opposed to a necessity. Lions Clubs all over the United States have taken to the streets to find old and used eyeglasses in order to produce a wearable eyeglass frame with new lenses. The new eyeglasses are then given to those who need them most - people who cannot afford eyeglasses.
GlassesUSA is proud to be a part of such a union. Eyeglasses returned by customers will be sent to the Uniontown Lions Club for collection. The glasses will then be recycled and sent to a re-manufacturing plant. From there, new lenses are manufactured suited to fit the needs of the future wearer. The eyeglasses are then sent to the people who need them the most.
As part of the partnership, GlassesUSA will give customers who donate their used eyeglasses a 10% discount on future frames with the presentation of a receipt from the Lions Club. Those interested in sending in their frames should send them to: Uniontown Lions Club C/O Bob Kendall 81 Pontius RD. Mogadore, OH 44260
Once customers have sent their glasses in along with their email address, a receipt will be given to them via email. In order to receive the discount, the customer must email the receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the coupon code.
