EYE-Q Cares: Holiday Edition

Posted on

We’ve spent the last 60+ years being the leading eye care provider in the Central Valley, and in that time, we’ve always valued community. At EYE-Q, we pride ourselves in being a valuable resource and want to give back to the community that has given so much to us—and this holiday season is no different.

National Wreaths Across America Day

This year, we are proud to announce our sponsorship of Wreaths Across America. Every December, on National Wreaths Across America Day, wreath-laying ceremonies are performed at over 1,600 cemeteries across the country. The goal of the event is to remember our fallen veterans, honor those who serve, and teach our youth about the value of freedom. To learn more about this event, click here.

Navidad En El Barrio

We’re also excited to attend Navidad En El Barrio on Saturday, December 21, 2019. This annual, nationwide event is dedicated to making life more pleasant to those less fortunate than ourselves. The Fresno Navidad En El Barrio is held by the Bautista Foundation, which is another foundation dedicated to helping people in our community. EYE-Q will be offering free vision screening to children who may have never had access to eye care before. If it’s found that a child does have poor vision, Dr. Barrón and Dr. Mendoza will be there to offer them a refraction. Tzu Chi, another generous sponsor, has contributed one of their mobile vision units for our use, which means that children with high refractive error may be able to receive glasses that same day.

This holiday season, we feel privileged to give back in ways that are so meaningful to our organization. We hope we’ve inspired you to spread a little Christmas magic this season!
