About Give Kids Sight Day:
PCCY and our partners have helped connect over 7,700 children obtain free eye care services since 2009! That two thirds of Philadelphia school children who fail a school vision screening do not get a follow-up exam was unacceptable to child advocates. 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.
You can also make a donation to support or work on children’s health.
Does your child need health insurance? PCCY’s Child Health Watch Helpline assists families in finding health insurance for their children. We help with applications for public health insurance, either Medical Assistance (MA) or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and to resolve enrollment problems. This service is free and is available in any language. Helpline staff also helps families find health care services such as primary care, dental, vision, and behavioral health care that they can access with or without insurance. Call PCCY’s Child Health Watch Helpline at 215-563-5848 x17 or email: email@example.com.
