Giving Back To Tucson

Volunteer groups and non-profit organizations do so much to help the communities that all of us are a part of, but they can’t do it alone. Alvernon Optical has dedicated our support to these local organizations.

Youth on Their Own (YOTO)

YOTO is a local non-profit organization dedicated to support the high school graduation and continued success of homeless youth by providing financial assistance, basic human needs and guidance. Their vision is to empower young people on their own to become positive and productive citizens of our community. A high school diploma is crucial to achieving future success.

Alvernon Optical and its independent doctors of optometry have pledged to provide annual eye exams and basic eyeglasses to YOTO™ teens who are working hard to achieve their high school diploma. Healthy vision and good eyesight is vital to learning
