My name is Peri and was born and raised in Georgia. Most of my life, I didn't really do enough to give back to the community, and as I've experienced more, I've come to understand the importance of giving back to the less fortunate whenever I can. I was fortunate enough to serve at Georgia Lions Lighthouse through the AmeriCorps program and even more so when they offered a full time position for me to serve. The Lighthouse provides vision and hearing care for the underserved and underinsured residents in the state of Georgia. This includes eye exams, brand new eyeglasses, brand new digital hearing aids, and eye surgeries through our partnerships. These resources can be very expensive and can be the difference between a person being able to live a normal lifestyle and being completely helpless to take care of themselves and others. With a pair of brand new glasses a child can do better in school. An adult can see the presciptions on their medicine bottles or fill out an important application. A new hearing aid can allow a person to hear their favorite music or hear their baby cry when the baby needs them. This endeavor has served thousands of people and with your help can serve even more. Please consider donatng to the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation. For more infomation visit their website at www.lionslighthouse.org.
