Don’t laugh, dentures can be donated!


NewEyes for the Needy no longer accepts donations of dentures.

Today is International Moment of Laughter Day, so get out those teeth!

Ever wonder what you can do with old dentures? Those old teeth don’t need to sink into the landfill!

Please ASK your local dentist, dental or nursing schools…because the source we found NO LONGER ACCEPTS DENTURES ):

HOWEVER, New Eyes for the Needy does accept other donations, just mail them to the warehouse in NJ in padded envelopes or boxes, and the cost of shipping is tax-deductible, for any of the items below:

  • plastic eyeglasses
  • sunglasses in good condition
  • metal eyeglasses in any condition
  • hearing aids
  • pairs of prescription lenses
  • watches
  • silver and gold jewelry
  • costume jewelry
  • silverware
  • giftware

    I’m trying not to laugh (or to laugh, depending on what we’re really supposed to do), but I’m tickled that the dentures get sent to New Eyes for the Needy, as I keep thinking that maybe they just want the “eye teeth”. OK, I’ll chortle to myself from now on. 🙂

    I hadn’t noticed the note above, but before spending the $$ or risking scaring the heck out of some hapless clerk I decided to email them and ask. They sent me the following polite response;
    That web information is incorrect. We do not accept dentures as donations.

      Sorry, Jennie, our source stopped taking dentures. If we find another source, we’ll post it. You may want to ask your local dentist for ideas. Thanks for thinking outside the bin!!
