Twenty-Five of our members will receive new glasses thanks to the good folks at Vision to Learn. Vision to Learn brought their Mobile Eye Clinic to the Boys & Girls Club this month to provide free vision testing to our members. Our kids were fitted for free eyeglasses and picked out their own frames.
Vision to Learn provides an important service to low-income youth, many of whom can’t afford eye exams or glasses, and who often struggle in school because they cannot see the blackboard or read up close. Since its inception in 2012, Vision to Learn has provided more than 16,000 students in Los Angeles and Sacramento with free eyeglasses, resulting in improved grades and improved self-esteem.
Special thanks go out to nursing students from Azusa Pacific University who volunteered to pre-screen our members for testing.
