Families from Boy & Girls Club were treated to eye exams courtesy of Swift Eyewear. Eighteen families came through for the special event held at Boys & Girls Club in partnership with Swift Eyewear. Swift Eyewear was offering up to twenty-five free pairs of prescription glasses for children. OHIP covered eye exams were administered at the Boys & Girls Club 506 Clubhouse. One-third of those children that attended the event needed glasses, and are being provided a free pair courtesy of Swift Eyewear.
Here is what some of our members and their parents had to say:
Victoria (ASP member) said:
"I liked the eye test and I am very happy to be getting new cool red glasses. Dr. Alf has a great sense of humor, it was fun. Thank you!"
Grandmother of our ASP member Jazaih said:
"We are so very glad to receive new eye glasses. The Swift team explained everything so we could understand. We are very grateful!"
