Providing low-income Denver children with the eye care and corrective eyewear they need to be their best in the classroom and in life.
The mission of Von's Vision is to provide low-income Denver children with the eye care and corrective eyewear they need to be their best in the classroom and in life. According to recent data collected by Von’s Vision, 38% of children in the United States need some form of vision correction. Three out of every ten children under six years old have never been seen by an eye doctor for a variety of reasons. Von’s Vision will work to provide solutions to this problem through development of targeted and strategic impact and outreach programs.

Tech for Tykes is a groundbreaking program that is changing the lives of young children with disabilities through the use of assistive technology (AT).
Tech for Tykes is a groundbreaking program that is changing the lives of young children with disabilities through the use of assistive technology (AT). Children with developmental delays or disabilities often have difficulty playing and interacting with the world around them. AT provides them with opportunities to be active participants in life rather than passive bystanders. We hope you will take some time to explore the many valuable tools and resources Tech for Tykes has to offer children, families, caregivers and providers in the early childhood community.
CRA is hosting an donation-based food drive, to provide low-income seniors with a hand delivered holiday gift basket filled with essential groceries to make a holiday meal, a present, and hygiene products.
With COVID-19 still sweeping the nation, much of the senior population will be spending the holidays in isolation this year, without the comfort and company of their families.
As part of Colorado Retina's commitment to Colorado's seniors we partnered with the Colorado Gerontological Society to participate in their Annual Holiday Baskets for Seniors Project. Our team will be hosting an in-clinic donation-based food drive, to provide low-income seniors with a hand delivered holiday gift basket filled with essential groceries to make a holiday meal, a present, and hygiene products.
Now until December 18th we are accepting designated canned and boxed food items to be dropped off at any Colorado Retina office. Requested boxed food items include: stuffing, mac n' cheese, rice, (Minute Made, Rice a Roni, Uncle Ben's, etc.), quinoa, meal-in-a-box mashed or au gratin potatoes, cookies, crackers, dried fruit or cereal. Canned items include: vegetables (green beans, corn, mixed veggies, carrots, etc.), soup, chili, or stew, gravy, beans, chicken or tuna, and applesauce. NO glass/breakable packaged items or expired food.
Our team goal is to “adopt” 50 local seniors and raise an additional $1,250+ in cash donations. If we hit our goal, we will provide FIFTY seniors with a real holiday experience and cover the additional 30% increase that the Holiday Basket Project is experiencing compared to previous years, due to COVID-19.
Join us, together we can help our Colorado senior community get through what can be a tough and lonely season, all while spreading holiday joy!
