Vision To Learn

With Rotary’s District 6900 Competitive Grant, via our partner Vision To Learn, our club will provide Fulton County students with vision screenings and prescription glasses for students in need. Prescription eyeglasses will be delivered within two weeks and lost/broken glasses will be replaced free of charge within a year. By providing low-income children with the glasses they need will improve the quality of their education, and the quality of their lives. About one in four children, whether from a family with means or a family struggling to get by, will naturally need glasses. Children who need glasses and don’t have them are more likely to be misdiagnosed with behavioral issues in kindergarten, be considered “slow” learners by 5th grade, and to drop out of high school. In addition to the competitive grant, our club will make an additional contribution to this project from the proceeds of our Wine Tasting and Pickleball Fundraisers. The club has decided to continue to support this project for the foreseeable future. All 833 eyeglases were distributed at Lake Forest Elementary and Sandy Springs Middle School
