Lions Club Donation
TUPELO, Miss.—Cheri Nipp, an occupational therapist with North Mississippi Medical Center’s Low Vision Rehabilitation Program at the Retina Center, and Brooklyn Tucker, an occupational therapy student from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, present incoming Lions Club of Tupelo president Jimmy Jackson and his grandson, Keller Lancaster, with approximately 600 pairs of eyeglasses collected throughout NMMC.
During National Low Vision Awareness Month in February, Nipp spearheaded an NMMC collection drive for used eyeglasses, sunglasses and reading glasses. The Lions Club will distribute the eyewear to those in need in third world countries. In addition, NMMC and the Lions Club collected eyeglasses for the Tree of Life Free Clinic and for a mission trip.
