May is Vision Health Awareness Month and Luther Village on the Park is collecting used eyeglasses from the community all month long for VOSH Ontario!
- Collect used glasses (we know you have a pair or two...)
- Drop off at Luther Village on the Park's Wellness Centre
- Donations will go to support VOSH Ontario
Used eyeglasses in good condition (no cases required) will be accepted at both the Atrium Wellness Centre and Sunshine Wellness Centre. Drop offs can be made Monday to Friday between 8:30am and 1:00pm. For questions please call 519-783-3236 ext. 2031 or ext. 2220.
Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (VOSH) Ontario is a Non-Profit Organization on a Mission to bring Vision to Every Person on the Planet. A group of local volunteers, including Dr. Valerie Dippel, have been working annually in Guatemala for the last 18 years providing eye care to people in the poorest rural communities. They usually take about 3000-4000 pairs of glasses.
