Custom-made eyeglass collection boxes constructed by Janesville Lions Club Treasurer David Welton were recently dropped off at the Blackhawk Credit Union’s West Court Street branch. Welton built the boxes, and his talented wife, Carol, painted the artistic scenery on two of the them.
All four of BHCCU’s Janesville-area locations are now official collection sites for our club’s eyeglass recycling program, and are the newest of the 30+ locations in Janesville and Milton to collect used eyeglasses to be regraded and recycled for distribution throughout Third World countries.
This program supports one of Lions Clubs International’s main service missions to be Knights of the Blind, as challenged by the late Helen Keller. For more information and to see a map and list of all locations, please visit our Eyeglass Recycling Program page.
