A big THANKS goes out to Nick Deluca for his donation and to the Minooka Lions Club for their assistance with the donation.

Nick, who is a Boy Scout from Pack #464 in minooka, collected 256 pairs of used eyeglasses for our cause as part of his Eagle Scout Project. He went door to door in Minooka to homes and businesses, handing out flyers and collection bags. Nick will receive his Eagle Scout Badge on March 26th!

We are in need of glasses (no cases please) so this donation is very much appreciated. We need to replenish our inventory of used glasses in both Illinois and California in preparation for our 2025 clinic. Donations are accepted at the offices of:

Ortiz Eye and Associates, 880 Bedford Rd, Morris, IL 60450
