“For the effort in the District, Vision to Learn partnered with the nonprofit philanthropy organization Blue Meridian and private foundation Deerbrook Charitable Trust to help fund the program. Warby Parker, the retail company, provided frames and lenses.
DCPS Chancellor Lewis D. Ferebee said in a statement that the partnership would help ‘enrich the lives of our students in and out of the classroom.’
Vision to Learn’s goal is to help ‘every child everywhere,’ Beutner said. While the efforts kicked off at Stanton, Vision to Learn is expected to expand to other D.C. schools.”
