Vision - KEX Kids Fund - early fall update

From July 1, 2021 through September 2021, the KEX Kids Fund helped 31 children with comprehensive vision exams and provided 32 vouchers for new eyeglasses for families in need.

Because of covid and schools not completely reopened, there had been a decline of requests. During the past few months, we started to receive more requests for help with vision care. The number of requests are increasing this fall as schools return to in person instruction and school nurses are able to refer more students.

School nurses work closely with the school vision screening program led by the Oregon Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation (OLSHF) to ensure that children who are referred for vision care receive resources such as the KEX Kids Fund.

School nurses are grateful for the resources provided by the KEX Kids Fund. This program helps children see and learn to their potential. 

Thank you for your support!
