Recycle Your Old Eyeglasses People around the world will see clearly when we care enough to recycle our old eyeglasses. Glasses, both child and adult, as well as eyeglass cases are needed. Broken eyeglasses can be recycled. Your used glasses will be sent to Crosslink International in Memphis, TN. Prescriptions will be analyzed, and the glasses will be shipped to faith-based nonprofits locally, nationally, and internationally and dispensed to those in need around the world. Thousands of patients have virtually no other hope of owning a pair of glasses. The vision of Crosslink Memphis is that through the donations we share, others will come to know the Lord by being able to see his beautiful creations. The collection box for eyeglasses is in Fellowship Hall in the church library.
