KLEF finds good home for recently donated equipment.
Updated: Aug 27, 2020
KLEF staff received a phone call in July from an office building owner in Shepherdsville, KY. The office building had recently been vacated by an optometrist who had left several pieces of vision testing equipment in the building. On July 28th, KLEF staff members Jennifer Hunt and Karen Kayse and KLEF board member Fred Wright went to the Shepherdsville office and picked up the equipment, filling three vehicles and moved it to storage. Some of the equipment we kept in hopes to be able to use it in our Vision Van Program and our staff reached out to a few Louisville eye doctors who may be interested in the remainder of the equipment.
