TRUCKEE, Calif. — Halloween means ghost and ghouls, trick-or-treating and lots of sweets. But the spirit of the season can also mean improved vision for those in need.

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” endeavor.

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.

You can help by donating your used prescription eyeglasses and prescription or non-prescription sunglasses.

Your eyewear, trendy or not, could help someone in need to see the world more clearly. The Gogain Group will be accepting donations throughout the month of October and has set up the following drop-off locations:

Dickson Realty office: Truckee. 11836 Donner Pass Road (corner of Northwoods and Donner Pass Road)

Dickson Realty office: Donner Lake, 15947 South Shore Drive (across from West End Beach)

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

Alice’s Mountain Market: The Village in Squaw Valley

Kings Beach Library: 301 Secline Street
