Wow, we are already in our 7th month of our 10 year Anniversary Challenge. With the start of the traditional school year, August is about young visionaries seeing a bright future. In fact, it’s also Children’s Eye Health and Safety Month.

What better way to give back to the community then to support a local program that has an immediate impact on Raleigh citizens with free eye exams in schools. Articulon’s donation to Prevent Blindness North Carolina will cover the cost of providing 10 vision screenings to 10 children at 10 different Triangle schools.
