community volunteers gather at Saturday’s Lions Eye Glass Project | MyPearlCity.com
I had a great time this morning spending time with volunteers from the Mana Loa-Nimitz Lions Club, Representative Gregg Takayama (Pearl City Lions Club), Senator Sam Kong (Mana Loa-Nimitz Lions Club) and other community volunteers who came together for the annual Lions Eye Eyewear Cleaning Project held this year at the Momilani Community Center in Pearl City.
Volunteers led by Lions Club Mana Loa-Nimitz President Dexter Aoki worked as a team to wash, rinse, dry, sort and package thousands of recycled glasses that will be sent to the Philippines for those in need. The recycled glasses were collected from donation drop boxes in Pearl City for one year.
Mahalo to our generous community for their donation of glasses. Every donation is truly appreciated and will help thousands of people in the Philippines receive the gift of good vision through Lions humanitarian efforts.
Also, mahalo at the Lions Club of Mana Loa-Nimitz for ono snacks, drinks and bentos which allowed all the volunteers to eat well and hydrate themselves throughout the morning.
Have a wonderful weekend!
