Seeing Clearly

Posted by Union Gospel Mission Feb 1, 2013 2:24:44 PM

PearleVision2Pearle Vision Center bestowed a tremendous gift on residents of UGM and other homeless shelters this past holiday season. Owner Larry Breazeal, O.D., examined 69 patients (all in one day!) who were given free glasses as part of this annual event. Manager Jana Erickson coordinated ten volunteers and six staff members, all of whom treated patients with respect and kindness. Hot dogs, popcorn and drinks were served. Devron Troutt, who has been without glasses for two years, said, ā€œIā€™m super thankful to be able to see again.ā€
