Volunteer Services and Patient Activities program launch reading glasses drive

Tuesday, June 21, 2022

WVU Medicine Volunteer Services and the Patient Activities program are holding a reading glasses drive June 10-24.

Patients often are admitted to the hospital without their reading glasses, which severely limits their ability to read and enjoy activities.

Employees and visitors can drop glasses off with the ambassadors at the main entrance of J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital and the entrance at the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute. Donations should be new, non-prescription reading glasses of all strengths.

Reading glasses can be purchased inexpensively at most stores and at the Friends of WVU Hospitals Gift Shop.
