Leo Club scaring up kids for Sight Night

Trick-or-treaters with the Hillsboro Leo Club can “Give the Gift of Sight” this Halloween season by collecting more than candy the evening of Oct. 24.

Sight Night is part of a national drive to collect used eyeglasses, which will be recycled and hand-delivered by LensCrafters and Lions Club volunteers to people in developing countries who can’t afford eyeglasses.

Children’s eyeglasses are especially in high demand.

Sight Night “ghouls and boys” may not make it to every home in Hillsboro, but eyeglasses can also be dropped off year-round at all LensCrafters stores and Lions clubs. A drop box will also be in the Hillsboro Middle School office.

To become a Sight Night volunteer, contact the Hillsboro Leos at 947-2564 or 947-2249.
