MEREDITH — The Meredith Lions Club has boxes set up locally to collect used eyeglasses and hearing aids.
A box is now at the front of the new Rite-Aid on Route 25. Boxes are also at the Meredith Public Library, the Chamber of Commerce , the Main branch of Meredith Village Savings Bank, the Visiting Nurse's office and the Meredith Community Center. The birdhouse wooden box in the Dump Store at the Meredith transfer station is also a drop off
The club also accepts donations to help defray the cost of shipping to the recycling center. To learn more about Lions contact www.lionsclubs.org or check then out on Facebook.
