On World Sight Day (10/08/15), 39DollarGlasses had the pleasure of volunteering with ChildSight® in Newark, New Jersey to assist with vision screenings for students in need.
ChildSight®, a product of Helen Keller International, is a program that provides underserved children in the United States with free vision screenings and prescription eyeglasses.
Without clear vision, children are at a disadvantage both academically and socially. According to ChildSight®, “One in four children in the United States will experience vision problems before they finish high school. Yet for thousands of children living in poverty in the United States, access to quality vision care remains out of reach and they are forced to face each day without clear vision.”
39DollarGlasses is proud to be partnered with a wonderful program that makes such a difference in the lives of children.
