Boys & Girls Clubs of America and National Vision are partnering to provide free vision screenings and, if needed, access to free, complete eye exams and glasses to club kids. National Vision contributes more than $1 million annually to support BGCA and its preventive care and wellness initiatives. In the East Valley, screenings will be done at Stevenson Branch-Mesa on Aug. 22 at 3:30 p.m. by National Wide Vision Center, 1025 S Power Road, Suite 102 in Mesa. Screenings will be done at the Chandler Compadres Branch on Sept. 19, 4:40-6 p.m. by America’s Best Contacts and Eyeglasses, 1005 S Arizona Ave., Suite 4 in Chandler. National Vision is bringing its vision screening program to Boys & Girls Clubs that are within 10 miles of its shops. Kids and teens will receive the free eye exam at corresponding clubs during the times provided. The youth/teen must attend the screening to receive paperwork to go to the Vision Store to have a more in-depth vision test and receive the up to $59 toward frames. “National Visionis 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 Safaa Sammander, the company’s philanthropic coordinator.
