Baltimore leaders celebrated the 1000th pair of glasses provided under the Vision for Baltimore program.
The citywide partnership launched in May to give elementary and middle schools students access to glasses, regardless of their family's ability to pay.
Mayor Catherine Pugh joined Health Commissioner Dr. Leana Wen and city schools CEO Dr. Sonja Santelises Wednesday to mark the milestone.
