Free Day of Vision

Martin Luther King Jr. Day The Salvation Army, Bloomington Lions Club and IU School of Optometry partner to provide Free eye exams and glasses

Low Income individuals of all ages in need of an eye exam and glasses should pre-register for the Free Day of Vision January 21, 2019

Individuals needing eye care

Call the Salvation Army office at 812-336-4310 ext 100 before Jan. 15, 2019 to get an appointment for an exam. Those without insurance coverage will be given first choice, there are openings for 60 exams.

Step 1


Ask the office staff to fill out the simple half page form, no documentation needed for this step.  If you are 18 and a citizen, we will ask for your name, date of birth, address (can use Shalom or Shelters addresses) and your driver's license number, state ID number or last 4 of your Social Security.  You sign it and we will take the form to the Election Central office for you.


Step 2
Preparing to vote? Do you need a State ID? It is free for voting.  Ask for information on how to receive your ID if you do not have one that is valid or has expired before Nov. 2016.


Step 3
Do your homework, read about the candidates and the issues and learn who will represent your interests.  Now, get out and vote!  We will even go with you if this is your first time since the early voting location is only a block from The Salvation Army office.
