Looking Out For Kids Donor ReceptionOn April 9th Salus University held a special thank you reception at the Elmwood Park Zoo in recognition of members of the Norristown community who have provided financial support to the University’s “Looking Out for Kids” vision care initiative in the Norristown Area School District. 

For three years now, the “Looking Out for Kids” charity has been providing comprehensive vision care and eyeglasses to uninsured and underinsured children in the Norristown Area School District. “The Donor Recognition Reception at the zoo was a lovely event, and I was very pleased to be in attendance,” said Patti Roman, Eisenhower Science and Technology Leadership Academy nurse. “Many thanks for your generous hospitality and gracious words, as well as all you do for our students.”

Supporters of the vision care initiative include Norristown Area School District School Nurses, the Patricia Kind Family Foundation, the TD Bank Foundation, Tornetta Properties, INC., Hillcrest Plaza Merchant’s Association, Genuardi Family Foundation, Conicelli Autoplex and Toyota Dealer Match Program, and J.P. Mascaro & Sons.  The initiative’s newest advocates, Expo Logic, also presented a generous check at the reception in support of the initiative.  Andrew Miller and Britney Angeles, students from Cole Manor Elementary School, were also in attendance and greatly enjoyed the exciting atmosphere of the zoo. 

The success of the “Looking Out for Kids” vision care initiative is due to the kindness and consideration of the Norristown community, and we are extremely thankful for their support.
