Help students in need with Eye Care 4 Kids

Poor vision has a tremendous impact on children: 91% of first graders who can’t read are struggling because of vision problems. Left undiagnosed and untreated, it can have a lasting impact on their education and future job prospects. We’ve partnered with Eye Care 4 Kids who provides eye exams and glasses for children in low-income communities. Their efforts immediately help children with correctable vision problems improve their performance in school and increase their confidence.

Please learn more about the work they do and the good it creates for these children and their families and consider supporting their efforts.
