A special thank you this holiday season

December 28, 2017

Happy Holidays!

Your generous donations to our campaign have made a great impact on this year’s program.

We would like to thank you for your support of Vision First. Because of your generosity, we are able to further our mission of bettering the lives of children in Cleveland area school districts. 

Brianna Martinez from Buhrer Dual Language School in Cleveland was one of the students able to receive an eye exam and free glasses.  Brianna and her parents would like to personally say "Thank you"! 

Mission accomplished - thank you all!

On behalf of the Vision First team, I would like to thank you all for your contributions. Your financial support helps the Vision First program continue to provide comprehensive eye  exams and glasses to the students in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. We believe that early detection and treatment of vision problems give children a better opportunity to develop educationally, socially, emotionally and physically.  The generous support of individuals like you makes it possible for our program to exist and make the community a great place to live.

Thank you again for your support!

With warm regards,

Rhonda Wilson

Vision Screening Program Coordinator

10k matching challenge!

July 10, 2017


We have just received a VERY generous match-gift of $10,000!

What this means:

Once we reach our goal of $10,000, we will be awarded another $10,000 to go towards purchasing a much-needed new van!

The van we’re using now is about 15 years old. Through generous support from donors like you, we can secure the program’s future and work towards purchasing a brand-new vehicle.

We need your help to keep spreading the word so we can reach our goal!

Please keep up the great work and share this page with your friends and family members, so they may donate whatever they can to help the children of Cleveland’s public schools.

Every gift matters. Every gift makes a difference.

Thank you so much for helping us make this program a success and check back in for more updates!
