In August, students from seven Dallas ISD elementary schools received uniforms for their schools from the Pat and Emmitt Smith Charities at a special pep rally-style event at Ellis Davis Field House.
Part of the event included free medical and vision screenings. J.N. Ervin Elementary School was one of the participating campuses, but the need for eye exams and – in some cases – eyeglasses went beyond the students who were served in August.
On Friday, Jan. 25, an Essilor Vision truck pulled up to the front Ervin Elementary to conduct vision screenings for additional students. The Essilor Vision Foundation will provide eyeglasses free of charge to students who need them.
