Eyeglass Recycling

Eyeglass Recycling


Many of the eyeglasses used on VOSH mission trips are recycled eyeglasses. First Lutheran Church in Gainesville, Florida hosts a monthly recycling clinic. All glasses recycled at this location are used for local clinics at Gainesville Community Ministries and for bi-annual mission trips to Nicaragua. For more information on how to get involved in these recycling clinics, contact Suzy Bamberg, VOSH Director, at suzybamberg@voshsoutheast.org
