Q. Where can I donate prescription eyeglasses in Ottawa?
A. The Ottawa Lions Club, like Lions Clubs in most towns, has a longstanding program of collecting eyeglasses for recycling. In Ottawa there are collection boxes at City Hall and the Illinois Secretary of State’s Office. If one of those is not convenient, call Lions volunteer Brandy at 815-433-5565 and she will pick them up. The Streator Lions Club also collects eyeglasses in various places; one of them is the Family Vision Center at 223 E. Main St.
