Trust Gives Grant To Support Indigent Care
The Allene Reuss Memorial Trust has given a $25,000 grant to support vision care for indigent men, women and children at the University Eye Center, the patient care facility of the SUNY College of Optometry. Since 2003, the Trust has given $300,000 for a program for learning disabled children and as well as care for the working poor of the City.
“We are very grateful for the Trust’s ongoing, generous support of our work. Through their annual commitment, we are able to provide critical care and eyeglasses to those people who may not otherwise receive them,” said Dr. Richard Soden, Vice President for Clinical Administration at the Center.
The University Eye Center has more than 75,000 patient visits annually.
