Geisinger Holy Spirit collected nearly 750 pairs of prescription eyeglasses, readers, and sunglasses this fall in partnership with local Lions Clubs.
Geisinger Holy Spirit encouraged employees and patients to donate gently used glasses for use in countries where vision screening and eyeglasses are unavailable to the poor.
Several Lions Clubs in south-central Pennsylvania, including those in Camp Hill and Lower Paxton Township, donated the collection boxes and will sort and ship the collected eyewear to distribution facilities in New Jersey and Virginia.
Additional donations of eyeglasses will be accepted on an ongoing basis in the hospital lobby, 503 N. 21st St., Camp Hill.
