                    Lion’s Club continues to be ‘knights of the blind’

                    The Oxford Lions have helped the needy obtain eye glasses for almost 70 years when the club was first chartered.

                    The club gives out about two $125 grants a month to adults and children who cannot afford to purchase glasses and, for whatever reason, are not eligible for Medicaid.

                    The club also takes donations of old eye glasses that are recycled and given to needy families. Old eye glasses can be dropped off at most Oxford eye clinics or the Bank of Commerce, 1610 W. Jackson Ave. Monetary donations for the eye program can be mailed to Oxford Lions, P.O. Box 1751, Oxford MS 38655 or given to any local Lions Club member. For more information, call Mulkey at 234-2220. (August 25, 2010, Page 1)
