DCTC Lions Club donates 1300 pairs of eyeglasses

Great story on positive karma. The DCTC Lions Club collected over 1300 pairs of brand new reading glasses that will be donated to those in need. How’d the club get them? The Lions did a fundraiser for the families of military veterans organization, Defending the Blue Line last April. One of their supporters in turn made some connections and donated the eyeglasses to the Lions. Lions Club International has a global network to get prescription eyeglasses to those who require aided vision but cannot afford it. Cool how positive karma works! eyeglasses
