Lions Club gathering eye glasses

By Lauren Benton

The Northwest Rangers Lions Club invites all students and faculty to

stop by the R.C. Pugh Library to see their new braille display.

“Sharing the Vision,” is the club’s theme for the month of October.

There is a box located in the back of the library to donate used glasses; these glasses can be reading, prescription or sunglasses.

The club will be collecting used glasses for the next few months, and they will be sent off to the student chapter of Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity.

SVOSH is an organization made up of optometry students in Memphis who clean, refurbish, sort and classify those glasses to be used around the world.

Future projects for the club include collecting canned goods and providing Christmas to a needy family in Tate County.

If interested in donating glasses or for more information on the

club, email
