Photos: Give Kids Sight Day

Posted Apr 14, 2014

Over 1,100 uninsured and underinsured children received free eye screenings and, if needed, two free pairs of eyeglasses at Give Kids Sight Day on Saturday, April 12. Eagles Youth Partnership, Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY), Wills Eye Hospital, Thomas Jefferson University, Visionworks and the First Hospital Foundation teamed up for the fifth annual event.

“Eighty percent of learning in school is visual.  If we can improve a child’s vision we can enhance their learning,” said Eagles Youth Partnership Executive Director Sarah Martinez-Helfman. “Eagles Youth Partnership is proud to be a part of such an amazing volunteer-run day. We’ve been providing vision care to children for the past 18 years through our Eagles Eye Mobile program, but there are so many more children who need the care. Give Kids Sight Day is for them.”
