In the spirit of the giving season, Denver Broncos Outside Linebacker Von Miller donated 2,013 eyeglass frames to Anchor Center in late December 2017. Due to this generous donation, Miller was named Week 17 NFLPA Community MVP.
In honor of this award, the NFLPA will make a $10,000 contribution to his foundation, Von’s Vision. He will also be eligible for this year’s Byron Whizzer White Award, an award of the highest honor from the NFLPA.
The donation to Anchor Center comes after Miller was presented with the Denver Broncos’ Community Impact Award in early December for his significant impact that Von’s Vision has had on Denver’s children.
“Anchor Center for Blind Children is blessed to receive this gift of beautiful, designer, corrective eye-wear for our children and the community who will benefit having their own customized glasses they can wear with confidence for years to come” said Savannah Wippel, Director Of Development And Community Relations at the Anchor Center for Blind Children.
As a personal mission to provide eyewear and eye care to children in need, Miller’s commitment to his foundation, Von’s Vision, has allowed him to find a way to help children see a brighter future.
2017 was a record year for Von’s Vision. 1,265 children received frames, lenses and eye exams in addition to the donation to Anchor Center. By the end of 2017, Von’s Vision provided a value of over $2 million dollars of free eye care to more than 5,000 of Denver’s children.
