At ClearVision, we consider it part of our social responsibility to make each day better for someone else. That’s why we empower our employees to band together in an effort to make a positive difference in the lives of others. After all, improving people’s lives is the core mission of the optical profession.
Throughout our history, we have given back, not only to the optical community, but also in the areas of breast cancer research, educating children, feeding the hungry, and hundreds of other charities.
The ClearVision Cares is an employee-run committee that organizes and encourages employees to donate their time and resources to charities and the community. Throughout the years, ClearVision Cares has worked with Long Island Harvest, Big Brothers and Sisters of Suffolk, Madonna House of Dix Hills and several other charitable organizations. Not only does our staff benefit the local community through volunteering, our matching charitable contribution program also gives incentive to ClearVision employees to give monetary donations to local not-for-profits.
Since 2007, ClearVision has teamed up with BCBGMAXAZRIA to create cause-related, limited edition sunglasses to raise funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Komen is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.
Through the years, this compassionate team has raised over $400,000 for the breast cancer organization.
In addition to our work with Komen on a national stage, ClearVision is teaming up with the Greater New York City Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. In 2010, we are lending our support to two Komen NYC events: Tickled Pink!, an evening combining fashion, shopping and breast cancer awareness and The Race for the Cure, one of the city’s largest, most exuberant outdoor events. In 2009, nearly 25,000 deeply committed people ran or walked in the Race.
Committed to helping end hunger in the Long Island community, ClearVision Optical conducts an ongoing food drive for Long Island Cares, Inc., The Harry Chapin Food Bank. Throughout the year, ClearVision employees band together to donate hundreds of dollars of groceries to help this organization with feeding 259,000 hungry Long Island residents in Nassau and Suffolk counties.
UCP Suffolk is part of a national organization, United Cerebral Palsy Associations, which was founded in 1949, by a group of concerned parents whose children had cerebral palsy. Today there are over 100 local affiliates throughout the United States.
