Our club has vision, and today 11 members and family gave a clear demonstration of that. They cataloged hundreds of spectacles (and washed thousands) at Respectacle in Hudson, WI. Respectacle is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that uses the power of the Internet to facilitate redistribution of quality, used eyeglasses to underserved communities worldwide. Glasses are donated by members of our community. They are then cleaned, categorized, and loaded into their online database based on their prescription. A proprietary algorithm finds a "closest match" for people looking for eye wear. Our members dried newly washed glasses, photographed and uploaded images, cataloged glasses and added fully processed glasses to the well-organized inventory shelves for distribution. You can see some pictures in our albums, below.
