• Eye Glass Collection - Chair: Ruth Coffaa and Jody Morrow - The local banks in Dell Rapids (Wells Fargo and First National) have drop off buckets set up in their lobby for glasses collection. The chair people go to each bank to collect and box up all the eye glasses that have been donated. The box is then taken to Sioux Falls and dropped off at the Lions Foundation. They give theeye glasses to VOSH (Volunteer Ophthalmic Services to Humanity). VOSH then gives the eye glasses to a 3rd world country for their use.

Once college information is received, a check is sent to that college for the student.
