Gwinnett Eye doctors provide free exams, glasses to Georgia nonprofit
GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Some Gwinnett County eye doctors are starting up their new business in a charitable way.
First Class Eye Care, a practice in Duluth, in partnership with Boy with a Ball provided free eye exams and glasses to kids the nonprofit serves in the Norcross area, Dr. Adam Young said.
"Love Your City exists in every part of a community!" a post on Boy with a Ball's Instagram feed says. "We are so grateful for their generosity as marketplace leaders who want to make a difference in their city!"
"Love Your City" is an initiative started by Boy with a Ball that tries to combat poverty in neighborhoods by empowering partners to build relationships with their communities.
