TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Witch reminds us … it’s October and you know what that means!

Once again, the Gogain Group of Dickson Realty, in cooperation with One Sight and Lions Clubs International, will participate in this year’s Sight Night.

Sight Night is an international effort to provide used eyewear to needy people across the globe. Looking for an easy way to participate in a global act of kindness this Halloween? This may be your answer.

Instead of asking for Halloween candy, the Gogain Group asks for your help in “scaring” up used eyewear during the month of October. For more than 20 years these glasses have been recycled and hand delivered to underprivileged people around the world. This year Sight Night’s quest is to help 7 million people.

You can help achieve this goal by donating your used prescription eyeglasses and prescription or non-prescription sunglasses. Big or small, trendy or not, your eyewear could help someone in need to see the world more clearly. The Gogain Group will accept donations throughout October and has set up drop-off locations in Tahoe Donner, Truckee, Squaw Valley and Kings Beach.

Dickson Realty: 11500 Donner Pass Road, Truckee, next to the Truckee Donner PUD, across from the fire station

Dickson Realty: Westgate,11425 Donner Pass Road, Truckee, across from Wild Cherries

Trout Creek Recreation Center: 12790 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee in Tahoe Donner
