Volunteers Help Our Kids Thrive

During the 2022-2023 school year, 45 Eye Thrive volunteers completed an astounding 203 hours helping with data entry, frame cleaning, inventory, and assembling thrive kits. That's an average of 4.5 hours each!

Volunteers are an integral part of our workflow, allowing our team to give more time to our kids.

Staggering Statistics

Did you know that within the five county metropolitan St. Louis region, more than 70,000 children are living in poverty?

Our friends and St. Louis neighbors at Vision for Children at Risk recently launched an interactive Children's Data Center, which tracks indicators related to child well-being for the region. Eye Thrive is crucial to delivering essential vision services to our kids so they don't get left behind - in the classroom or in life.
