The Slidell Noon Lions Club has increased the number of collection boxes for the Lions International recycled eyeglasses program. The used eyeglasses are delivered to regional recycling centers where volunteers clean them, sort them by strength and package the glasses. Most of the glasses are distributed to people in need in developing countries where they will have the greatest impact. Children’s glasses are especially needed.
Boxes can be found at Aldersgate Methodist Church, All Vision, Bayou Adventure Bait Shop, Lacombe Family Pharmacy, Body by Cook, on Saturdays at the Camellia City Farmer’s Market, Community Christian Concern and Slidell CVS locations.
Boxes also can be found at the offices of Dr. Gary Artigue, Dr. Ellen Schneider and Dr. David Slagle; Eyecare 20/20; Eyemasters; First United Methodist Church; Honaker Funeral Home; Knights of Columbus hall; Infinite Vision; Masters-Tech; Northshore Family Vision Clinic; Ochsner Eye Clinic; Pinewood Country Club; and two Rite Aid locations.
Also, at Rivertown Optical, Slidell Eye Clinic, Slidell Noon Lions den, Slidell Optics, the U.S. Post Office on Second Street and three Walgreens locations.
