Happy Halloween! We are delighted to share that today Vision To Learn helped our
Thanks to the wonderful work by our staff and our partnerships with communities across 13 states, we have hit a spectacular milestone. Join us as we recap the work we have been doing at Vision To Learn for the last few months.
2019 Summer of Vision
A Record-Breaking Summer with Boys & Girls Clubs
Big Projects Happening This Fall
We are excited to announce Vision To Learn’s launch in San Diego Unified this fall! In SDUSD elementary schools, an estimated 9,000 students lack the glasses they need to see in a classroom. A new Vision To Learn mobile clinic will begin helping San Diego kids with the generous support of Price Philanthropies.
Due to overwhelming support from the community, this fall we are adding a second mobile clinic to our Charlotte, North Carolina program. Double the clinics means double the students served!
Through a new statewide MOU, Vision To Learn will be helping kids on all the Hawaiian islands in partnership with Project Vision Hawai`i, Hawaii Department of Education, and Hawaii Keiki Nurses. This collaboration will provide over 3,500 Hawaiian “keiki” with eye exams in the year to come.
Stories from the Community
We want to share with you one of our favorite stories we have received this Fall from a community partner in North Carolina:
“Today was a huge success at CFSC today! Thank you to the VTL team for the awesome service you provide to our community. Today was a very touching day for me…the children were so excited ‘to be able to see’ and to have their new glasses before starting school! As a rising freshman told me today, ‘I will be able to see, and will go from being a B student to a straight A student – I am going to college!'”
-Donna McCombs, Children & Family Services Center
We’re excited to carry on these successes to the New Year!
