We received the following email from the Opticians Association of America:
We are all aware of the devastating hurricane that wreaked havoc in the State of Texas. The Opticians Association of America is working with the Certified Opticians Association of Texas (COAT) to assist those opticians whose dispensaries and homes were damaged during the historic storm.
COAT is hopeful to raise a minimum of $10,000 in order to help these opticians. Unfortunately, most people in the Houston area do not have flood insurance. OAA is asking that you make a donation through COAT's GoFundMe Page (https://www.gofundme.com/helptexasopticians).
Any size gift is deeply appreciated as we try to assist our fellow opticians recover from the devastating damage caused by the hurricane. Click Here to make your donation today.Thank you for your support and please keep your thoughts and prayers with the people of Texas.
