“Students do better when they come to school prepared to learn, and a pair of glasses is a critical tool for those with vision issues,” Superintendent Stephen Green said in a release about the event.
The event was co-sponsored with Vision to Learn, a non-profit that provides free eye-care to students across the nation.
According to the non-profit, more than 55,000 metro Atlanta students go to school without the glasses they need to see.
The program was first brought to Georgia in 2017. Then, more than 2,100 glasses were provided to Atlanta Public Schools students.
