Eye Care 4 Kids to open Las Vegas campus 12/1

Eye Care 4 Kids, a non-profit organization that provides eye care to underprivileged children, will open its first Las Vegas campus near Brinley Middle School on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012. Local students and CCSD Trustee Chris Garvey are expected to be on hand for the event. Eye Care 4 Kids has teamed up with the Clark County School District to bring free eye exams and glasses to struggling students. Founded in 2001, Eye Care 4 Kids has helped some 50,000 low income children and adults get the eye care they need but otherwise couldn't afford. The group aims to serve about 1,000 low income Clark County children within the next year. For more information, call Heidi Hayes at  591-9627.
