Holiday Message from the President

At this special time of year we are so thankful for all those who remember us and the work we do for so many, providing funds that help us in our work all year long. We were especially touched by a local marketing firm who made a donation to the Society in recognition and honor of over 250 of their firm’s friends and clients. 

Their special message speaks for so many, including us: 

This Season’s Call to Kindness

Sings its Ode to All

Warming the Cold with Courtesy,

Noticing Others Good Intentions,

Enkindling Souls with Acts of Love.


May You Be Washed in Kindness and

Revel in Loving Encounters During This

Season of Waiting and New Life to Come.


We Wish Everyone the Best of Holidays and All Goodness in 2017!

Dave Ekin, President


#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!
