A local non-profit is donating $75,000 worth of new eye lenses to kids in need.

The Noor foundation is a local non-profit that provides free health care to adults without insurance.

It recently received a large donation that adds up to roughly 7,000 children's frames.

However, they don't normally see kids under 18. So they're donating the frames to a variety of clinics that do see children.

“We've been really fortunate this year with eye glass frames. We got some really nice donations in a good quantity,” said Abe Lincoln, executive director with the Noor Foundation.
