About Give Kids Sight Day: Did you know that two thirds of Philadelphia school children who fail a school vision screening do not get a follow-up exam? As child advocates, we think that is unacceptable. PCCY and our partners have helped connect over 6,500 children obtain free eye care services since 2009! Building on PCCY’s successful Give Kids a Smile Day model of free dental care for kids, PCCY and our partners designed “Give Kids Sight Day” a day of free eye checks and eye glasses for children who need them. Major sponsors of the event are Wills Eye Hospital, Eagles Youth Partnership, Jefferson University Medical College and First Hospital Foundation.
