Then next ACORN Meeting will be on April 20, 2009 at 6:30 P.M. at the Youth Center at 9th in Kerlin Street.

Free Eye Glasses

Please share with those who may benefit...Thanks
In case you have a child or know of someone who does (ages 12 and
under), they can get a FREE pair of eyeglasses from Target:
Target is doing a special promotion for their optical service. It could
end any time but will definitely end no later than April 29th. Children
12 and under can get a free pair of glasses.
They need to bring in a valid prescription for glasses from their doctor
and Target will let the child pick from about 40 different frames. They
will place their best lenses in the frames which are non-glare and
scratch resistant and normally sell for $200.00. There are no income
guidelines. Any child 12 or under is eligible.
You can find stores with optical departments at <http://www.target.com/>
www.target.com <http://www.target.com/> or <http://www.target.com/%3E>
http://www.target.com/> <http://www.target.com/%3E> ; to confirm they
are participating before making a trip to their store.
Please pass this information on to anyone who can benefit from this
promotional offer. If you know someone with lost or broken glasses
please share this information with them ASAP, as the promotion could end
at any time. They would like families to come in as soon as they can.
