The New Jersey kickoff was celebrated June 1, 2017 at Speedway Academies in Newark, where Jay Bromley, then a New York Giants defensive tackle, made a surprise appearance. Newark Public Schools is New Jersey’s largest school district, with an enrollment of almost 35,000 kids. Vision To Learn has provided over 7,000 vision screenings, 2,700 eye exams and 2,000 pairs of glasses in the first year of this program.
Initial funding for Vision To Learn’s services in New Jersey was generously provided by Laura and John Overdeck through their namesake Overdeck Family Foundation. In the Fall of 2018, Vision To Learn learned the Overdecks’ generosity will continue—and with their additional support, Vision To Learn looks forward to helping kids beyond Newark by expanding services beginning January 2019.
