Changing lives through the gift of vision
New Eyes for the Needy works to improve the vision of poor children and adults in the United States and around the world. For over 80 years the organization has offered support by giving clear sight to those in need, providing basic pairs of eyeglasses they otherwise could not afford. For many individuals, these glasses will be the first and only pair they ever own.
Volunteers at New Eyes for the Needy sort and categorize used glasses which are shipped overseas to people living in impoverished countries such as Haiti, Ghana, Indonesia, and Senegal.
Vision is a gift many of us take for granted, and this donation is an important reminder that not everyone is so fortunate. We’re happy to give children a better chance at succeeding in school. Additionally, we hope that our contribution will help adults find or maintain employment, and help the elderly remain independent.
