L.O. Eye Care, formerly Lansing Ophthalmology, was founded in 1960 by Dr. Justin Sleight and Dr. Raymond Hogg, two ophthalmologists who believed strongly in helping those in need. That tradition continues today. The doctors and staff of L.O. Eye Care support community organizations throughout Mid-Michigan.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations across the United States are collecting donations for distribution to local women’s and family shelters for delivery on Mother’s Day. We believe Mother’s Day should be a joyous occasion for mothers and their families. Unfortunately for some women, that’s not always the case. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is hoping to change that with a program called Movers for Moms® — a collection of comfort and essential items that will be delivered to women utilizing the services at Child and Family Charities, The SafeCenter, and Haven House on Mother’s Day. This is the 11th year for the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Movers for Moms® program. The Lansing franchise joined the Movers for Moms® program to support those less fortunate by making this Mother’s Day a little bit happier for them. Last Spring, Movers for Moms® collected more than 295,000 essential care items for women in hundreds of shelters across the nation. This year, our goal is 310,000 items. The donations we encourage for the Movers for Moms® drive include any/all comfort items that all moms enjoy: nice soaps, hair conditioners, soft pillows, slippers, etc. Essential items such as food and toiletries will also be welcome. NO GIFT IS TOO SMALL. We are collecting donations for this year’s Movers for Moms® program until the week of Mother’s Day. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has women in key leadership roles across the company, and some of our most successful franchisees are women, so the idea for Movers for Moms® came to us naturally.
