Carlos from Chicago, IL

Now I deliver packages, but with an eye exam + glasses, I can work as a welder!

I'm training to work as a welder and need prescription safety glasses to start a new job.


I am currently training at Jane Addams Resource Center to become a welder. I’ve been in the program for two months with one month left to complete the program.

My goals is to obtain a job in the manufacturing industry. I currently deliver packages for Amazon part-time, but I’m really excited to pursue my new welding career full-time!

I need an eye exam and safety prescription glasses. This will protect my eyes during training and my work.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to see my welds more clearly, and will keep my eyesight safe and secure.

Thank you for helping Carlos fund this need.
