A record year for eye glasses

Officers of the Minden Lions Club stand with 594 pairs of used eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses that were collected locally over the past nine months. Combined with the 286 pairs collected in August, 880 pairs were collected – making 2021-22 a record year for Minden donations! All donated eyeglasses will be processed, recycled and distributed to those in need.

As a reminder, the Minden Lions Club is always collecting new and used reading glasses, prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses throughout the year. You may drop them off at the yellow donation box across from Roma Italian Restaurant, the American Legion Hall (Thursdays at noon), Dr. Spurlock’s Eye Clinic, Moss Eyecare, Meriwether Wealth & Planning, b1BANK, GBT Bank and other designated locations.
