A local organization will be helping eye care missions throughout the world with a special promotion during the Door County Fair. The Forestville-Maplewood Lions Club is asking customers to bring old pairs of prescription eyeglasses to help their worldwide campaign to reduce visual impairment. For each donated pair, the customer receives a free burger. Member Tom Mueller explains what is done with the glasses from there.
The eyeglasses are provided free of charge when they go overseas, according to Mueller. The Forestville-Maplewood Lions Club has 30 members currently and will feature one of the main food booths at the Door County Fair from August 1st through the 5th.
