Imagine going to school and not being able to read what the teacher is writing on the blackboard – even while sitting on the front row – because you know you need glasses, but your parents can’t afford to buy a pair.
Or perhaps being a senior or veteran who could otherwise drive themselves to run errands, but for the lack of a pair of glasses.
In Rogersville, Tennessee, thanks to a grant from Americans Helping Americans® to our partner there, Of One Accord, soon 80 children and senior citizens won’t have to strain their eyes to try to see clearly.
Through its eye care program, Of One Accord partners with a local optometrist for discounted prices for exams and regular glasses for children and even bifocals for senior citizens who need them.
It’s a sight we here at Americans Helping Americans® just love to see.
