SYCAMORE - To support healthy vision through nutrition, Spex Expressions will collect canned and dry goods from now through Dec. 15, with all items to benefit Hope Haven.

A collection box is located in the practice at 2570 DeKalb Ave. in Sycamore. 

“Good nutrition is essential for healthy eyes,” said Dr. Jeffrey Frank. “We are pleased to be able to provide Hope Haven with much-needed food for area residents.”

A sample list of items needed includes peanut butter, jelly, canned meat, canned tuna, macaroni and cheese, rice, beans, hearty soup, pasta, spaghetti sauce, cereal, canned fruits, canned vegetables, diapers (sizes 4, 5, 6), infant formula, baby food, dental hygiene products and 100-percent juice.

Everyone who brings in five nonperishable items will be entered into a drawing for a pair of free ZEISS eyeglass lenses, valued up to $500. 

“We hope our patients, neighbors and friends will bring in food to support those in need during this holiday season,” Frank said.

For more information, call 815-758-1039.
