#GivingTuesday – Join the Movement

giving-tuesday-2016Today is the day!

It is #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving which always follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  We are so grateful for the wonderful support we receive each day from the St Louis community.  Without your generosity we simply could not provide the support we do to over 1,200 adults and children with low vision and blindness.  A gift today on Giving Tuesday allows us to continue to

Provide Vision Education Services to blind and visually impaired students in 7 counties surrounding St Louis.  These students would not receive the educational,  social, and mobility training without the Society.

Provide assistance in the use of one’s remaining vision for completion of daily living tasks (reading, writing, medication management etc.)  mobility (safe and independent travel inside and outside the home), adjustment to vision loss (counseling and family education) and technology training for adults with age-related eye conditions.

“Sure my vision loss has been difficult. It’s so easy to dwell on what one can no longer do. But the Society has helped me to re-focus on what I CAN do”, says Jean B.

Please consider giving a gift today to help those like Jean.  Click the Donate button in the upper left hand corner of our home page or call 314-968-9000 and tell them you would like to make a gift to Giving Tuesday!

Help Pass Seniors Count Initiative, Proposition S


With the election only days away we hope those in St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County will vote to support Proposition S. This important ballot initiative will help fund service to seniors, which is becoming more important with the aging of our population and lack of services for this growing group of individuals. Proposition S, also known as Seniors Count Initiative, would raise significant funds to address the serious gaps in funding and services for seniors living at home.  Funds would be raised through a property tax increase of 5 cents per $100,000 of assessed valuation.  This is a small amount to insure quality of life and services which can include things like nutrition, transportation, home maintenance, home care coordination, behavioral health, dental and vision health, and respite services. Please Support Proposition S!
