Deep Well: Father, son get new glasses

info@islandpacket.comDecember 4, 2012 

George is 52 and a single father of a teenage son.

Last year, his son needed new eyeglasses. The Lions Club would pay for part of the cost, but George didn't have enough to cover the rest.

The Deep Well Project agreed to help him and called a local vision center. During the call, Deep Well learned that George had obtained glasses from the same center years ago for himself, but he had not been able to afford a new pair.

Deep Well paid for glasses for both father and son.

Deep Well provides a broad range of social services for poor working families, the disabled, the sick and the elderly.
