A coat. A meal. A pair of glasses. Simple things like these often stand between a child and their ability to learn.

This fall, thousands of kids are headed back to school. While most families are able to stock up on supplies, some will have a much harder time making ends meet. Let’s help kids get off to a great start.

“Two sisters found out they have astigmatisms during our school’s vision screening. Their parents could not pay for the needed eye exam and glasses, but Care to Learn was able to meet their needs. Now, both girls are so proud they can see.” -Care to Learn Chapter Liaison
