Weekly Announcements

2017 SCAGPO CHARITABLE PROJECT

A sincere thank you goes to everyone that participated in the 2017 Summer Quarterly Charitable Contribution fundraiser for the Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired - Charleston. With your generosity, we were able to raise $1,139 towards the purchase of a new vision screener.

The vision screener is primarily used in schools to screen students to ascertain their visual abilities within the first 45 days of school. Children not passing the initial screening are offered a full eye exam by an optometrist or ophthalmologist on-site. Those needing prescription glasses are provided glasses delivered to the school at no cost to the child’s family within 2-3 weeks. The value this provides is priceless to the families and the students that do not have to suffer from undiagnosed vision problems.

As a thank you to those contributing to this project, SCAGPO provided incentives to those that were willing to help work towards the goal for the new vision screener. All of those making contributions were put into a drawing at each donation level for some great prizes!

SCAGPO is pleased to announce the drawing winners resulting from each donation level.
