Family Service Society aims to eclipse hunger with food drive

Do you have eclipse glasses yet? Local 6 ran out of our solar eclipse glasses within just a few days. But a local nonprofit is offering you the chance to snag a pair in exchange for helping your community. 

The Family Service Society in Paducah has announced it has 200 pairs of certified solar eclipse glasses it will give out in exchange for donations of corn. The organization says it is completely out of the pantry staple.

The organization is calling the campaign Groceries for Glasses, and it kicked off this week. You can drop of your donations at the Family Service Society at 827 Joe Clifton Drive between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Monday through Friday.
