Christenbury Eye Center Challenges Community to Support Homeless Families in Need

Donation to The Salvation Army Provides a Home for a Single Mom and Her Kids

Charlotte N.C., December 29, 2015 – Once again, Christenbury Eye Center is sponsoring a family in need this holiday season with the help of the The Salvation Army Center of Hope. This year marks the 11th year Christenbury Eye Center has sponsored a family by providing funds for permanent housing and utilities. Dr. Jonathan Christenbury is challenging the Charlotte community to also provide support to help get more families off the streets and out of shelters to find permanent homes.

The sponsored family receiving this year’s donation include a working mother and her two children, ages 2 and 4. This mother works at Chick-Fil-A and is currently studying to take the General Educational Development (GED) test. As in prior years, Christenbury Eye Center provides support for rent and utilities for six months. In addition, the family will receive a Target gift card for home supplies and also to provide a Christmas for the children. The goal is to help this family move from the shelter to a more stable living situation. Once moved, Mom can focus on finding a better job and education for her children.

“We’re happy to help this family, as we have helped 10 others, gain stability this holiday season. We hope our donation creates a safe environment for mom and her children so they can focus on a stable and productive future,” says Dr. Jonathan Christenbury, Medical Director, Christenbury Eye Center. “I want more people in our community to do the same. Let’s step up and help our homeless families and give them the best gift ever this holiday season.”

Through the Center of Hope, The Salvation Army helps homeless women and children in the community with their immediate needs of shelter, food and social services. Located two miles north of Uptown Charlotte, the Center of Hope sleeps an average of 300 women and children every night. An active member of the Homeless Services Network, The Salvation Army is a leader in providing families with a successful way out of homelessness, helping them enter permanent, affordable housing through their Rapid Rehousing program and other programs tailored to the needs of individuals and families.

About the Christenbury Eye Center

Dr. Jonathan Christenbury established Christenbury Eye Center in 1987 and is known for his groundbreaking work in vision care. For two decades he has consistently been one of the first surgeons in the Carolinas to perform many pioneering vision care procedures including LASIK, Visian ICL, ReSTOR® and TECNIS.

Dr. Christenbury performed the first LASIK procedure in the Carolinas in the early 1990s and since that time has performed more than 100,000 laser vision correction procedures. He performed the first WaveFront Customized IntraLASIK in the Carolinas in 2005. In the Spring of 2005, he was the first in the Carolinas to perform the ReSTOR procedure that treats Presbyopia and can eliminate reading glasses and bifocals. Today, Dr. Christenbury is the most experienced multifocal implant surgeon in the United States.
