The generosity of the Port Jefferson School District community was once again realized when students, staff and families collected dozens of eyeglasses for the high school’s Leo Club that will be donated to the Lions Club International’s Recycle for Sight program.
“Not only do our students understand their role in civic engagement, this project helps them recognize the needs of others around the world,” said Leo Club co-adviser Brian Chalmers, of the donations that are placed in inventory for distribution to optical missions internationally.
