Members of the Morris Community High School chapter of National Honor Society assist I Care International as their main chapter service project each year.

Each month, they devote several hours to cleaning, sorting, reading, and labeling donated eyeglasses for I Care’s mission trips.

Lions of Illinois along with local Lions Club chapters and many area residents supply the used eyeglasses for this project.

Several thousand pairs of eyeglasses are needed for each mission trip in order to provide the correct prescriptions to those in need.

Volunteers for I Care see about 3,000 patients during their annual mission trips to locations such as Mexico, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Peru, as well as the United States.

In addition to providing eye exams and glasses, volunteers on some trips have also provided hearing screenings and hearing aids to those in need. To learn more about I Care International, please visit www.icareinternational.org.
