Lions recycle glasses for those in need

The Jamestown Lions Club has always collected used eyeglasses to be recycled and repurposed.  The organization found that the pickup committee was making multiple trips every month to various vision centers across the local area because the boxes were always full.   Past President, Steve Maggio suggested that the collection boxes get “supersized”.  Maggio enlisted the help of Shawn Carlson to build 6 boxes.
