COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - Baptist Memorial-Golden Triangle collected more than 575 eyeglasses, sunglasses and cases for the East Columbus Lions Club's "Recycle for Sight" project.
Collection boxes were located in several areas around the hospital for eight weeks.
The hospital says it presented the glasses on Friday, May 4 to the Lions Club.
"Thanks to all Baptist employees as well as the public who made a donation," the hospital stated.
Collection boxes will remain in the 5th Street Lobby, as well as the patient tower lobby for future donations.
The glasses will be recycled and later distributed to people in need in low and middle income communities.
