Healthy Vision Month, Letter from Assistant Speaker Hall


Please unite with me in support of a Healthy Vision Month initiative to be conducted during the month of May, 2011.  I am requesting Optometrists from our local area to collaborate with Angels for Sight, Inc. to provide eye care to underserved/uninsured citizens in our community.  Each participating Optometrist is asked to see one patient a week during Healthy Vision Month, providing services for a total of four patients.  If needed, the patient then has the opportunity to receive free glasses from Angels for Sight.  May 2011 will be the inaugural Healthy Vision Month program of Angels for Sight.  What an awesome opportunity to unite and provide a worthy and much needed service.

Angels for Sight, Inc.,  a 501c3 non-profit community-based eye clinic, is dedicated and committed to providing free vision screenings, eye examinations and glasses to uninsured, underserved and low-income individuals, who otherwise would not have access to such services.  There are more than a million residents in the south Los Angeles/Compton area.  Nearly 50% of all adults and 30% of all patients in this area are uninsured and cannot afford eye care services.  To date, Angels for Sight has provided vision screening to more than 5,000 persons and provided full eye examinations and glasses to approximately 750 persons at no cost.

Your generous donation of care through your charitable resources will assist us in sponsoring a successful project.  DO NOT DELAY!  Please click on the link below and be the first to join our award winning team of volunteers who are committed to this worthy cause.

Thank you in advance for partnering with me, Angels for Sight, Inc., and other Optometrists to “make a difference in our community”.

Sincerely,

ISADORE HALL, III
