An Official Community Partner
We just recently announced our partnership with Eye Care 4 Kids. They are such a one-of-a-kind charity. With locations in Utah, New Jersey, Nevada and Arizona, they’re making an impact across the country. To date they have helped more than 300,000 children receive eye exams.
Volunteer with Eye Care 4 Kids
If you’re looking to get involved with Eye Care 4 Kids there are a couple of ways to do so. You can confidently make a donation with their nonprofit, 100% of proceeds go back to help the kids. $100 provides exams and glasses for 3 kids actually! If you’d like a more hands-on approach, then you can volunteer at one of their clinics. When you volunteer you could be reading to children who are waiting for their exams, assisting the families at the clinics, or you could be dressed up as their mascot See-More the bear! There are more than 10-million children in the United States that are in need of vision services, so they need all the extra hands that they can get. You could hold a fundraiser at your office and help even more underserved children!
The Founder of Eye Care 4 Kids
The founder of Eye Care 4 Kids is an optometrist himself! Joseph Carbone left his private practice to start Eye Care 4 Kids in 2001, and his nonprofit has grown substantially since then. Not only has he managed to create brick and mortar locations in 4 states, but he also has multiple mobile clinics. He saw firsthand how many families were unable to access nor afford professional eyecare, and he has since been on a mission to make that change!
How can you help Eye Care 4 Kids? When you work with a K Real Estate Agent, you also have the opportunity to “Give Back.” Clients and agents can choose an organization to donate to, and the brokerage donates on their behalf. The donation never comes out of the client or agent’s pockets. Learn more about how that works on the Give Back Brokerage’s website.
