More than 4,100 prescription glasses donated

Story

To honor Sharon Darrigan, who recently passed away, Metropolitan King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer presented the Federal Way Lions Club unclaimed eye glasses left behind on Metro busses to benefit families in need. 

Sharon Darrigan was the wife of Bob Darrigan, a member of the Federal Way Lions Club. Bob Darrigan continues to be an instrumental, driving force for the Federal Way Lions Club.

Pete von Reichbauer secured more than 4,100 unclaimed prescription glasses.  This is the largest donation since the program began. The Federal Way Lions Club and von Reichbauer have teamed up to ensure that those who cannot afford costly prescription lenses will now have access to a quality pair of eye glasses.

“Being in a position to provide proper eyewear to those who need it most is an exceptional privilege,” said von Reichbauer. “It is an even greater honor to donate the largest amount of glasses to date in honor of Bob Darrigan’s late wife, Sharon Darrigan.”
