)-- Kids Vision for Life St. Louis, who provides vision services to over 40,000 students in the St. Louis area, will be benefiting from Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria’s Giveback Tuesday event on Tuesday, Aug. 27 at their Town & Country location.
Every month, Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria features a local nonprofit charity and donates 100 percent of profits from the entire day to the charity. Lunch, dinner, drinks, and carryout are all included. So far, Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria has donated $214,080 to local nonprofit organizations.
Support from Katie’s Giveback Tuesday will provide vision exams and prescription eyeglasses for St. Louis’s most vulnerable children living below the poverty line. Additionally, funds will support Kids Vision for Life St. Louis’s effort to raise awareness of the importance of vision health through community outreach at back-to-school evenings in local school districts.
“There’s no better feeling than seeing the look on a child’s face when we give them a pair of glasses for the first time,” says JJ Scarbrough from Kids Vision for Life St. Louis. “With Chef Katie Collier’s donation, we’re going to see a lot of happy faces this school year.”
Last school year, Kids Vision for Life St. Louis screened over 45,000 children, performed over 4,600 eye exams, and prescribed over 4,200 pairs of prescription eyeglasses.
