By Essilor News
DALLAS – August 31, 2017 – Since Hurricane Harvey made landfall, the hearts and minds of all of Essilor of America have been with our employees, customers, friends, and family members in the affected regions. As the floodwaters begin to recede, one thing is clear: many people face a long and difficult road to recovery. To aid in the relief efforts, Essilor will donate more than $100,000 in funds to those impacted by this catastrophic event.
Essilor has committed $25,000 to Optometry’s Fund for Disaster Relief, a program of Optometry Cares—the American Optometric Foundation to aid in the recovery of all impacted in the industry. In addition, Vision Source is collecting donations to aid the 60 locations and 400 staff impacted by the storm through their Vision Source Foundation. Essilor will match all donations to the Vision Source Foundation dollar for dollar up to $25,000. Essilor will also provide the same donations to PERC/IVA and Optiport to provide aid for their locations and staff members in the region.
In addition, Essilor will take donations from corporate employees to aid their fellow employees in the region impacted by the storm. The company will match these donations dollar for dollar. The Essilor Vision Foundation is working with its partners in the affected region and mobilizing to offer support in the coming days and weeks.
