Grand Opening of Midvale Clinic Allows EyeCare4Kids to help many more Utah children and families
On Friday, October 29th, EyeCare4Kids officially expanded its clinic and dedicated its new Midvale, UT headquarters to bringing professional eye care and glasses to the state’s expanding but underserved populations. Families who simply cannot afford professional eye care will be able to receive it through the facility. According to the company, it was a moment 20 years in the making, with over 400,000 children already helped in 20 years!
EyeCare4Kids's non-profit efforts help children and families around the world with professional eye care.
“We are so pleased to offer this beautiful, expanded clinic to our Utah families who so desperately need, but cannot afford, the eye care services so many others receive,” says Joseph Carbone, EyeCare4Kids founder and president.
“This new clinic will allow us to help 20,000 more children every year and we’re so grateful to corporate and private donors who have made this moment possible.” Carbone added, “Many times you can get caught up in the total number of those we have helped (400,000) but what matters most to EyeCare4Kids is continually helping ‘the one’ child or family with the gift of vision. We see miracle every single day here, and now we’ll see many more each year.”
