The Gary family brought more than 1,730 pair of eyeglasses, with over 1,500 pair collected by BK2HK. What a joy it was to be involved in this. BK2HK plans on continuing the collection, so if you wish to donate any Prescription Eyeglasses/Drug Store Reading glasses/and Prescription or non-prescription sunglasses to us for next summer’s trip to Guatemala, please send them to our address below.
