The St. John 4H Club hosted their second annual eyeglass collection campaign.  This program assists the Lions Club “Recycle for Sight” program.

Through this program, the Lions Club and St. John 4H Club accepts prescription and reading glasses, sunglasses, and plastic and metal frames.  Children’s glasses are especially needed.

After collection, most of the recycled items are distributed to residents in developing countries.

4H Vice President Chloe Hebert and Historian Parker Jackson presented their collection of eyeglasses to Lions Club members.  4H President Emily Deslatte was unable to attend.
