VOSH Fundraiser 

Every year, volunteers with South Dakota VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity) travel to Mexico to provide free vision exams and eyeglasses to those in need in the Gomez Palacio region. This year, Dr. Robert Fox, OD, FCOVD and his wife Randy, will be returning to Mexico on their 5th VOSH mission along with COVT Elizabeth Levy.

Prior to the trip, thousands of donated eyeglasses are labeled, sorted, and shipped to Mexico. After their free vision exam by the volunteer optometrists, patients are matched with the pair of eyeglasses that best fits their needs. Each year, many children are seen for vision exams at the VOSH clinic hosted by the Gomez Palacio Lions Club. Unfortunately, the amount of children’s eyeglasses that are available does not meet the needs of the clinic.

 

SO HOW CAN YOU HELP?!

1. By donating any old children’s eyeglasses that you may have
OR
2. By donating money to help Fox Vision Development purchase children’s glasses! $10 can buy a pair of glasses to give a child the gift of vision!

*****For every $10 you donate, you will be entered in a drawing to win a $50 Starbucks gift card!*****

Eyeglass donations as well as checks (made out to Fox Vision Development) can be dropped off at our office during regular business hours! Monetary donations can be made through the Venmo app to @ejlevy3!
