Clark, N.J., Dec. 9, 2020 — Eversight is pleased to announce a $2,500 gift from the Amboy Foundation to benefit the gift of sight for under- and uninsured New Jersey patients in need of sight-restoring transplants.
The Amboy Foundation is committed to serving the needs of communities through strategic investments in educational, civic, health, human services, social and cultural organizations provide a measurable impact.
“Last year, more than 50 socioeconomically disadvantaged residents of New Jersey received cornea transplants with the support of Eversight’s Gift of Sight program,” said Jennifer Rosenblatt, Eversight Philanthropy Director.
“The Amboy Foundation’s important support for Eversight will help ensure that New Jersey patients unable to afford sight-restoring surgeries will receive them, and regain their eyesight and greater independence as a result.”
