New Eyes for the Needy in Short Hills
New Eyes for the Needy in Short Hills, New Jersey celebrates its 75th Anniversary this year. It is a wonderful non profit organization that purchases new prescription glasses for poor children and adults in the US and recycles donated glasses for distribution for people in need throughout the world.
ABC highlighted New Eyes for the Needy this past weekend with questions answered by Susan Dyckman, the executive director and Clelia Biamonti, the president of the Board of Trustees.
New Eyes for the Needy has provided nearly a half-million people with the glasses they so desperately need in the US as well as 56 Countries including Argentina, Cambodia, Ghanna, Morocco, Nigeria and Uganda.
Funding comes primarily through individual donations, foundation grants, corporate sponsorships and special events. They also have a jewelry and gift-ware re-sale showroom at their facility in Short Hills. Fabulous Finds is open Thursday afternoons and certain Saturdays during the school year and is completely volunteer run. The showroom contains estate and costume jewelry, watches, silver, crystal, china and gift-ware – all available at bargain prices because the merchandise is all donated to New Eyes for re-sale.
You can help New Eyes for the Needy by making a cash donation, donating your used eyeglasses, hearing aids, jewelry and gift-ware. A gift of just $60 will buy the glasses that can turn someone’s life around.
Donors can give right on New Eyes website, www.neweyesfortheneedy.org.
