Eyes Wide Open

eye-examIn partnerships with two local eye care providers and Of One Accord Ministry in Northeast Tennessee, we’ve provided eye glasses to 78 patients since July 2011. Patients are referred to the program through Of One Accord’s food pantries and free clinic.

One recent recipient couldn’t get a drivers license because she failed the eye exam and was unable to pay for an exam and glasses. As a result, she was unable to work.

Thanks to your support she was able to get a new pair of glasses through the Americans Helping Americans® funded eye glass program. We are very pleased that she not only passed her driver’s license test but has secured a job!
