Eyecare About Reading Atlanta Book Drive

on July 16, 2012

We are proud to say that we will be participating in a the Eyecare About Reading book drive to benefit, Bess the Book Bus and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.   Through August 22 new books will be collected for donation to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta as well as to Bess the Book Bus, a mobile literacy outreach program that travels across the country providing free books to underprivileged children in schools, shelters and community organizations.  For every three books donated, VSP Vision Care will donate one free eye exam (and, if needed, glasses fitted with Transitions lenses) to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta for children without access to these services.  If Atlanta collects the most books Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta will receive an additional 100 free eye exams (and glasses with Transitions lenses), as well as a special visit from Bess the Book Bus.  We have teamed up with a local blogger to spread the word about this worthy cause.

Metro Atlanta residents  will be able to donate their new (for the safety of patients) books at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Urgent Care Centers listed below. Hours of operation for the centers is 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and 9a.m. to 9p.m. on weekends.
