VON MILLER ANNOUNCES VON’S LOCKER PROGRAM IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HERO PRACTICE SERVICES

Von's Vision will now serve kids across the Front Range, from Pueblo to Colorado Springs to Greeley

Colorado Springs, Colorado, UNITED STATES


Denver, CO, Nov. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This week, Von Miller announced a new program of the Von’s Vision Foundation in partnership with Hero Practice Services. The program, Von’s Locker, will expand the foundation’s eyecare services to kids in need across the Front Range.

"To serve kids across the Front Range is an exciting step for Von's Vision. I'm humbled by the commitment of this team to serve children and Hero Practice Services is a great partner for us to expand the impact of Von's Vision." – Von Miller, All Pro Linebacker for the Denver Broncos and founder of Von's Vision

Von’s Lockers will be installed at 13 Adventure Vision and Academy Kids Vision locations across the Front Range. This means that, for the first time, Von’s Vision will be moving beyond Denver to serve kids statewide. By providing care in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Greeley, Longmont, Loveland and Denver we can greatly increase the number of children impacted each year. Hero Practice Services will begin hosting Von’s Locker Days in early 2020. The events will be held monthly in one or two practices most often on Saturdays, so that students don’t miss school and more parents are available to bring kids for exams. The partnership has the potential to provide an additional 1,500 pairs of eyeglasses to kids in need each year. These events, like so many of the other Von’s Vision events, will make vision care an exciting thing for children, helping them feel comfortable and confident when getting glasses.

“Our mission at Hero Practice Services is to reach as many kids in underserved communities as possible. What’s great about this partnership, is that Von’s Vision brings awareness to the need via Von’s notoriety and we can address that need in our practices, making it easier for families to get care on an ongoing basis.” –  Josh Gwinn, CEO of Hero Practice Services

Everyday, uninsured children are referred to Von’s Vision. Now, through the Von’s Locker program, these children won’t have to wait for a Von’s Vision Event Day to be seen, they can receive care at an Adventure Vision or Academy Kids Vision location at any time under the umbrella of the Von’s Locker program. Lockers will contain a selection of fashion forward, frames from Etnia Barcelona, Bevel and other partners. In addition, Von’s Vision kids will receive Von’s Vision branded gifts like sunglasses and wristbands. When Von’s kids receive their glasses they will also pick out a Von’s Vision case and cleaning cloth.

Hero Practice Services will be working with their community partners to identify kids who have vision needs and qualify for the program. Through outreach to school nurses, Head Start programs and other child-focused agencies, students will be able to apply and schedule appointments for Von’s Locker.
