Stocks in this article: HUM

Lions Vision Center, Inc. has been awarded a $100,000 grant as the winner of this year’s Humana Communities Benefit program in Arizona. The grant was funded by the Humana Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM).

Testing more than 40,000 children in Maricopa County and seniors in nearly 800 nursing homes annually, Lions Vision Center strives to provide free or low cost services and new eyeglasses to needy children and adults, and detect treatable eye diseases that affect their quality of life.

The Humana Communities Benefit grant will allow Lions Vision Center to acquire 10 spot vision refractors for pre-school, elementary and high-school children. The testers will enable Lions ophthalmologists to screen thousands of students in a short period of time to detect vision disorders that would handicap a child’s potential in school, helping to expedite and improve the accuracy of vision testing and detect eye diseases. The remainder of the funding will be used to purchase eye glasses for the students. The testers may also be used for screening elderly patients who are unable to use an eye chart.

“Our organization is grateful to receive this grant from the Humana Foundation and look forward to putting the funds to good use with improved, more efficient vision testing for school children,” said Jeannette Russell, Executive Director of Lions Vision Center, Inc. “We’re encouraged that, due to this grant, we will soon be able to expand our services to more people throughout Arizona in need of vision care.”

In its seventh year in Arizona, the Humana Communities Benefit program, funded by the Humana Foundation, gives 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations in Maricopa County the opportunity to receive a one-time grant of $100,000 to create new programs or enhance ongoing activities that have a positive transformational impact on the organization and the community. Proposals align with the Foundation’s funding priorities of childhood health, intergenerational health, and active lifestyles. The Humana Communities Benefit grant provides the opportunity for one nonprofit to create new programs or enhance ongoing activities focused on improving health experiences or building healthy communities.
