  • Helen Keller International received $250,000 to provide school- and community-based vision screenings, comprehensive eye exams and glasses to low-income children and adults in northeast Ohio.
  • $95,000 to Senior Citizen Resources to fund two vans to replace outdated vehicles and to expand access to transportation services for northeast Ohio seniors.
  • And $500,000 to the Ohio Association of Foodbanks to fund new and leased refrigerated trucks, refrigerators and freezers at food banks and food pantries across the state, and resources for safely handling and effectively marketing fresh produce.
