On Tuesday, October 23 at the Carnegie Community Centre, The Eyeglasses Project teamed up with Ollie Quinn to provide eye exams and prescription glasses to Vancouverites in the downtown eastside.
The numbers are in. We fitted 102 pairs of prescription eye glasses. We also provided comprehensive eye exams to 64 individuals, 49% of whom had never seen an eye doctor.
Thanks to all our Ollie Quinn and Carnegie Community Centre colleagues and volunteers, and the generous support of Richmond Chinatown Lions Club and Leaders of Tomorrow Academy. This could not have happened without your generous gift of time and support. We share your community values and are excited to build on this success with you.
