Pasco County Tax Collector Mike Fasano announces that his office will promote the “A State of Vision” specialty license plate during the month of January. The plate benefits the Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired and Blind, a charitable organization that provides services to help people of all ages who have partial or total vision loss. The Lighthouse has provided services to thousands of program participants during its 30 years of existence in Pasco County. Programs offered by the Lighthouse include Early Intervention for Blind Babies, Teen School to Work Transition and Independent Living Skills for Adults and Seniors.
Customers who wish to purchase a specialty tag pay a fee above the normal renewal cost for the plate. For the “A State of Vision” tag the fee is a once a year donation of $25. Customers may also choose to make a charitable donation to the Lighthouse’s Blind Babies and Blind Youth Services Program via the $1 check-off program upon renewal of a tag or through a direct cash donation accepted at the tax collector’s office.
“The Lighthouse wishes to send a very big thank you to Pasco County Tax Collector Mike Fasano and his entire staff for supporting nonprofit organizations in Pasco County, and a special thank you for promoting the Lighthouse,” states Sylvia Perez, Executive Director of The Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired and Blind.
“I encourage vehicle owners to consider purchasing the “A State of Vision” tag for their vehicles when they come in to our office for renewal,” Tax Collector Fasano states. “Visual impairment has the potential of touching anyone at any time. Displaying the “A State of Vision” tag on your vehicle will show other drivers that you support the important programs and services offered by the Lighthouse for the Visually Impaired and Blind.”
The tag promotion runs throughout the entire month of January. The tags will be available for purchase in the four locations in Pasco County where tags are sold: New Port Richey, Gulf Harbors, Land O’ Lakes and Dade City. For more information about the tag promotion please contact Greg Giordano, Director of Customer Relations, at the tax collector’s office: 727-847- 8179.
