Vision to Learn
The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation has partnered with Vision To Learn, a non-profit organization which provides free eye exams and free eyeglasses to elementary school students in low-income communities throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. Vision To Learn coordinates with local schools and sends out optometrists and opticians to conduct free eye exams and fit children for free eyeglasses. Because the students pick out their own frames, it’s a fun experience for them. Kids can’t wait to receive their new glasses! Two weeks after the examination, Vision To Learn delivers kids’ free eyeglasses to their school.
On May 13th, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation and Vision To Learn kicked off the program with a visit to Dorris Place Elementary School were Dodger Catcher A.J. Ellis and Dodger Pitcher Brandon League handed out new eyeglasses to students at their school. As part of the partnership A.J. Ellis and Brandon League filmed a public service announcement about Vision To Learn and where featured on a Vision To Learn mobile eye exam vehicle that visits schools throughout Los Angeles.
