Volunteers needed, Give Kids Sight Day

Posted by Public Citizens for Children and Youth on October 8, 2018

It’s that time again (just a little bit later than usual!) – time to mark your calendars and help spread the word for Give Kids Sight Day on November 17th!

Children 17 and under in and around the Philadelphia area are invited to this FREE annual event for FREE eye care and eyeglasses. Sight Day is geared towards kids who did not have or did not pass an eye screening this year. Registration takes place from 8:30am to 1:00pm at Jefferson Alumni Hall and features eye screening, a health fair, free books, snacks and more!

No health insurance? No problem! All children are welcome. Walk-ins only, no appointment is needed! We do suggest families arrive early.

Download and post Sight Day flyers in multiple languages for your organization and in key spots in your community at http://www.pccy.org/sightday. Flyers are available in English, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Hindi, Vietnamese, French and Haitian Creole.

Help spread the word further by joining us on social media! You can find us on Facebook @GiveKidsSightDay or Twitter @PHL_GKS

Please forward this email to your co-workers and networks too!

Volunteers are also needed to make this event a big success! Each year, we recruit nearly 400 volunteers to assist families register and help them move between patient care areas. We’d love to see you there! Sign up at http://www.pccy.org/sightday. Language interpreters are also needed and in highest demand in Spanish, Mandarin, Vietnamese and Indonesian. Please share this opportunity with a friend.
