Josh Kraft has been involved with Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston for over 20 years and knows firsthand that even basic medical needs for many club members are lacking. Vision care in particular is often completely ignored or overlooked.

“By partnering with Davis Vision to co-host vision screenings we are able to provide more for our members beyond youth development; we are contributing to their health and well- being,” says Josh. “This enhances our role as a community partner and is something the kids and their families appreciate.”

At the most recent screening this past June, nearly 50% of participants received a voucher for a follow-up full exam and eyeglasses. “In other words,” says Josh, “without Davis Vision, at least 100 members would not know they had a vision problem and receive the services to see better.”

Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston’s relationship with Davis Vision is a lasting one. “We have partnered with Davis Vision for three consecutive years to bring important vision care services to our clubs. Our experience with Davis Vision is always positive and I know we’ll continue with these events for many years to come,” says Josh.
