It was a busy and successful first quarter of 2020, January through March, for the KEX Kids Fund. We'd like to say a sincere thank you to all of our donors, supporters and dedicated providers for helping children in need in Oregon and SW Washington get the vision help they need to be successful in their school and scoial expereinces and in their lives.
During this period there were 199 requests submitted. Of that 199, 156 were Approved, 1 was Denied, 4 were Canceled and 38 were Completed.
This period was a partially a result of the work of our partners at the 20/20 School Vision Screening Program from the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation and the school nurses of the region we all work with.
School nurses and principals have shared that access to exams and eyeglasses helps their students in the classroom, and most recently new students from another country received crucial help through the KEX Kids Fund. They can see and learn better now!
