Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and National Vision share a multi-year partnership (2015-2018), which provides funding to eligible local Boys & Girls Clubs in support of free vision screenings, and if needed, access to free, complete eye exams and glasses to Club kids through their America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses locations. In addition to the eye care and eyewear commitment, National Vision contributes more than $1 million annually to support BGCA and its preventive care and wellness initiatives.
National Vision is offering to bring its vision screening program to Boys & Girls Clubs that are within 10 miles of an America’s Best Contacts & Eyeglasses location. Together we hope to ensure young people receive the vision health services they need to thrive, both inside and outside of school.
Kids and teens will receive the free eye exam at corresponding clubs during the times provided below. The youth/teen must attend the screening to receive the paperwork then be able to go to the Vision Store to have a more in-depth vision test and receive the up to $59 for frames.
“At National Vision, the belief is everyone deserves to see their best to live their best. Through a partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, National Vision is excited to provide children the opportunity to receive a pair of glasses if needed, in order to excel in the classroom and in after-school activities,” said National Vision philanthropic coordinator, Safaa Sammander.
