S.O.S – Save Old Spectacles
In 2020-2021 our PNW District Save Old Spectacles Program was very successful in “Giving the Gift of Sight” to people around the world. Our cumulative total collected to date is over 570,000 pairs of pre-owned eyeglasses. Yes, in just the past 28 years PNW Kiwanis clubs have collected and processed thousands of eyeglasses in suitable condition for professional placement to men, women, and children of great need in third-world countries. Our goal of collecting 12,000 this next year is well within our reach.
If your club has played a role in our current program, we salute you for a job well done. If your club would like to get involved with the Save Old Spectacles community service program, we encourage you to download an S.O.S. packet. It comes complete with Printed Ad Copy, Art Work (for creating collection cartons), Shipping Labels, and a Reporting Form for your club to receive recognition for participation in the greatest S.O.S. program in all of Kiwanis International.
