K-Kids Club continues eyeglasses drive

The Loyola School K-Kids Club, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Los Altos, is collecting eyeglasses for its annual “Share Old Spectacles” drive. Students hope to collect more than 1,200 pairs of eyeglasses during this year’s campaign.

The K-Kids Club, comprising second- through sixth-graders, has collected more than 1,000 pairs of glasses each year with help from the public and storeowners who offer space for collection buckets.

The glasses are sent to Direct Relief International in Goleta, where they are repaired and distributed to those who need them in the U.S. and around the world.

Los Altos collection boxes are located at Loyola School, 770 Berry Ave.; Heritage Bank of Commerce, 419 S. San Antonio Road; Ciana Salon, 227 Plaza Central; Eye Lite Optical, 286 Main St.; Meyer’s Learning Center, 365 First St. Unit D; and the Los Altos Town Crier, 138 Main St. Mountain View collection boxes are available at Eye City Optometry, 1350 Grant Road No. 17; Alan Clark Optometry, 644 N. San Antonio Road; the El Camino YMCA, 2400 Grant Road; and Wells Fargo Bank, 809 Cuesta Drive. A Palo Alto collection box is located at Foothills Tennis and Swimming Club, 3351 Miranda Ave.
