Sam’s story

Sam’s family had a house fire and among other things, his glasses were lost in the fire. With no resources to replace them, his mother was very concerned and upset. Sam could not see the board well at all and his teacher had to move him up to the front and even then he was squinting all of the time. His mother came to the school nurse asking for help and shared with her that Sam had told her all that he wanted for Christmas was for Santa to bring him new glasses. His school nurse made a referral to Healthy Learners who provided Sam with a new pair of glasses. Sam was very excited to have his glassesĀ  again and his mother was extremely grateful for the assistance.
