    There are services that can do this for not too much money. Shutterfly, Costco (maybe), and others.

    Make sure to get archive quality DVDs. There is ink/dyes in DVDs and it will dissipate over time. Archive quality DVDs are treated to slow that dissipation so they can last up to 100 years. Standard discs last 10 years or less, typically.

    How many? The best option is a really good film scanner You can buy a Canon Flat bed that will do a very good job of scanning slides and might cost less then having a shoe box full of slides commercially scanned.

    I used an HP and did all my families slides a few years ago.....Over 2,000 scans!! The HP only would do 6 slides at a time.
