December 2014 – Hope Haven
Our sixth and final eye care clinic of 2014 was hosted at Hope Haven on December 7th. Not only did we provide more than a dozen residents with eye exams, but we were also fortunate to provide a surprise appearance by Santa Claus. The clinic served men, women and one teenager, several of whom had never had an eye exam. We had just received a fresh shipment of frames, so the selection of eyeglasses for residents to choose from was the largest yet. Following the clinic, we served a delicious lunch, kindly donated by Boardwalk Billy’s, to all residents and volunteers. The BBQ was fantastic!
After lunch, the kids at the event were overjoyed when Santa and his head elf made a special appearance to provide Christmas gifts. The excitement on the kids’ faces couldn’t be contained, making this one of the most memorable events Seeing and Believing has hosted to date.
