Jamesburg Family Eyecare is a new, privately owned optometry practice that is located at 333 Forsgate Drive, Jamesburg.

The business offers comprehensive eye exams, contact lens fittings and designer eyewear. Most insurances are accepted.

There is also free coffee, tea, hot chocolate and snacks for all guests.

The optometry center is female-run, and has the American dream angle as Dr. Magdalena Spiewak moved from Poland in 1993, learned English within the first 12 months of arriving in the U.S. at 10 years old. She then went on to excel at academics, including a full scholarship to St. John’s University in Queens.

Spiewak is bilingual, and welcomes Polish speaking residents

In addition, the eye care center is launching a year-long eyeglasses drive to collect 2,016 used eyeglasses in 2016 to donate to the local Lion’s Club. Residents can stop by the office, even without an appointment, to donate their old glasses.

Jamesburg Family Eyecare is open 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays and 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays.

The Provident Bank Foundation presented a $7,500 grant to Embrace Kids Foundation, located in Middlesex County, for the Embrace Kids Learning Center and Beyond.

The Embrace Kids Learning Center and Beyond was created in response to the many challenges and concerns faced by children with a chronic or life-threatening condition.

Through the program, Embrace Kids minimizes the impact the illness has on their education and their social lives and improves the outcomes in transitioning to higher education, employment and independent living.

The organization’s priority is keeping patients abreast of their studies and assisting them in reaching their full potential. “Embrace Kids supports the entire family affected by a child suffering from illness, including parents, siblings and grandparents,” said Jane Kurek, executive director, The Provident Bank Foundation.

“These families depend on the services and benefits that the organization provides, and we are humbled to continue funding their extraordinary work.” For more information about The Provident Bank Foundation, visit
