Results: November 2014 to February 2015: 1,134 Prescription Glasses Given Away!

We've been so busy hosting vision events that we have forgotten to post new results.  Here photos of the events we've hosted from November 2014 to February of 2015. November 1, 2014 we hosted an event at Chinatown Presbyterian with lots of great volunteers including students from Berkeley Optometry School.  24 exams and pairs of eye glasses were given away at the event!

In December 17th, our machines were at the Project Homeless Connect event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium and  131 individuals received eye exams and prescription eye glasses.

In January we hosted two vision events.  On January 12th, 2015, our event at St. Paulus Lutheran Church in San Francisco's Polk Gultch District enabled 46 individuals to get exams and prescription eye glasses.

On January 27th, our event at Inglesia Santa Maria y Martha Lutheran in San Francisco's Mission District provided 39 eye exams and prescription glasses for individuals in need.

In February we hosted two vision events.  On February 6th, we held a vision event at St. Paulus Lutheran and got 30 individuals exams and prescription eye glasses.  On February 27th, our event at the MSC South Homeless shelter got 41 individuals prescription glasses.
