Kirby Puckett Eye Mobile

About

Greeter volunteers will safely assist the students from the classroom to the Kirby Puckett Eye Mobile and back, assist children when picking out glasses, and help put the child at ease during the child’s time KPEM. This role is a good match for retired opticians and vision care professionals as well as for anyone who enjoys working with children and being active during their volunteer time. Kirby Puckett Eye Mobile volunteers help to remove vision issues as a major roadblock to learning - allowing every child the opportunity to reach their fullest potential.

In 2015/2016 we were able to dispense close to 600 prescription glasses for students seen on the Eye mobile.
