Heather Belgin, president of the Youngstown Lions Club, holds one of the boxes for collecting eyeglasses. People are asked to drop off their unwanted glasses, which will be restored and given to those who can’t afford them. Boxes have been placed at the following locations: Libraries in Austintown, Boardman, Brownlee Woods, Campbell, Canfield, Main, Poland and Struthers; Remax Valley Real Estate Office in Boardman; and Youngstown City Hall. The club also provides eye care and glasses to local residents who are in need. To apply, contact the local Goodwill office, which will determine your need and qualifications. If you’re approved, the Lions will provide the funds through Goodwill for your eye care.
