GLAZER FAMILY FOUNDATION VISION MOBILE VISITS

TWO MORE SCHOOLS IN TAMPA BAY

GFF logo The Glazer Family Foundation Vision Mobile continued its tour of Tampa Bay this week, visiting two more schools to provide vision exams for students who struggle to see clearly. On Monday, the mobile vision unit traveled to Booker T. Washington Elementary School in Tampa, where more than four dozen students had the opportunity to board the kid-friendly bus to receive eye exams. Recently, all 532 students at Booker T. Washington had their eyes examined by equipment provided by the Glazer Family Foundation. After 52 students exhibited a need for further eye testing, the Vision Mobile visited the school to provide more extensive exams. Forty-seven students were recommended for glasses, and each had the chance to pick out their very own glasses frames.

This week, nearly 100 students had the chance to pick out a new, free pair of glasses while aboard the Glazer Family Foundation Vision Mobile.

 

Along with having their eyes examined, students enjoyed the Buccaneer-themed bus, which is decorated to mimic iconic team settings such as Raymond James Stadium and the Buccaneers' locker room. While waiting their turn, students also had the chance to try on an official Vincent Jackson jersey and helmet, or learn a cheer from a Buccaneers Cheerleader, using official team pom-pons. Members of the Bucs' staff even helped the kids run through a series of youth football drills.

 

The excitement continued on Tuesday and Wednesday, when the Glazer Family Foundation Vision Mobile traveled to Fairmont Park Elementary School in Pinellas County to examine nearly 70 students. Originally, all 570 children at Fairmont Park had their eyes screened in preparation for the Vision Mobile visit. This week, 50 students were fitted for glasses, which they'll receive in the coming weeks.
