Project 20/20 will be at April 24 'Frog Jump Fish Fry' to receive glasses and distribute donation boxes


Phillip Cox, a volunteer with Project 20/20, will have a display at the "Frog Jump Fish Fry" at Archers Chapel United Methodist Church in Frog Jump, Tennessee, on Tuesday, April 24, to receive donations of eyeglasses and sunglasses, as well as distribute donation boxes.

Project 20/20 is a Memphis Conference lay-driven ministry that operates a glasses recycling center at Emmanuel United Methodist Church in Memphis, Tennessee.

Project 20/20 supplies cleaned, refurbished and repaired eyeglasses and sunglasses to mission teams that travel to underdeveloped countries to provide free vision care to the poor. Click here for more information about Project 20/20.

Cox is asking men who will attend the Fish Fry to check their church box(es) and bring contents to the Fish Fry. He also hopes the men will encourage their churches to donate additional glasses before delivery on April 24.

Cox will make sure all donations of glasses make their way to the recycling center for processing.

In addition to receiving donations of glasses, Cox will have a supply of donation boxes for any churches that need boxes. 

Joe Kelley, United Methodist Men national prayer advocate, is the scheduled speaker for the Frog Jump Fish Fry. Click here for more information about the Fish Fry.
