Help us Reach Our Goal:

Provide 12,000 students in Trenton with corrective vision services

Children Reached

80% of learning during a child’s first 12 years is VISUAL.

Students with uncorrected vision problems are more likely to fail at least one grade and can fall behind reading at grade level by 3RD GRADE. This milestone is critical to PREVENTING DROPOUT.

In underserved communities, 95% of children who need glasses do not have them. Students with uncorrected vision problems often avoid reading, suffer headaches, and have trouble focusing in class.

A gift of $140 sponsors a child in Trenton to receive comprehensive vision services through our partnership with Vision to Learn. When you give, you are helping that child succeed in school and in life.

We believe that everyone deserves access to high-quality healthcare, no matter their ability to pay. Learn more about how you can join us in the journey to eliminating health disparities in Trenton and Mercer County.
