Mesa, AZ (PRWEB) September 16, 2005
Pima Medical Institute, 555 S. Renton Village Place in Renton has teamed with LensCrafters to serve as a drop-off site for used eyeglasses for their annual Sight Night event. Donors can drop off used eyeglasses and sunglasses (no cases or extra lenses) into a donation box located on the receptionistÂs counter in the lobby.
Sight Night is an annual eyeglasses collection project sponsored by Give the Gift of Sight Foundation and Lions Clubs International. Volunteers from Lions, LensCrafters and other organizations across North America are asked to canvass their neighborhoods and collect used eyeglasses during trick-or-treat.
"Using eyeglasses to improve vision is something most of us take for granted, but in many countries this is a luxury people canÂt afford," said Robert Panerio, campus director for the career college. "We are pleased to help improve vision for those less fortunate. And for those who are looking for a career vision, we also invite you to take a tour of our new campus and see what we have to offer."
The Renton career college features 12 class/lab rooms with: computer labs for class and general use; complete Dental Assistant lab with up-to-date equipment; X-ray and darkroom facilities and a complete Veterinary Assistant Lab.
The 25,000 square foot campus offers programs for Dental Assistant, Medical Assistant, Medical Administrative Assistant, Pharmacy Technician, Phlebotomy Technician and Veterinary Assistant. It is located just a few blocks from the junction of the I-405 and SR-167, and within walking distance of South Grady Way Park and Ride.
