Yuma, AZ - United Way of Yuma County announced today Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma has made a very generous donation to the EyeSpy 20/20 program.
The EyeSpy 20/20 has already screened nearly 8,000 children in Yuma County. The 2018-2019 school years, will allow more children in Yuma County to be screened for potential vision problems. Early detection leads to early intervention to correct possible future issues even blindness that can occur. Now, with this donation from ACF, United Way of Yuma County can bring the vision screening down to Somerton, Gadsden and San Luis school children.
This generous donation from Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma will continue to help advance the common good for several children in our Yuma County community, who normally, would not have access to vision screening or glasses. Every dollar is empowered and goes directly to help those children who have undetected vision problems. With a whopping 25% of children screened having failed their vision screening, more than ever, in these times, we all must Live United Yuma.
