Giving Back to Our Community
All of us at Primary Eyecare Associates know the importance of giving back to the community in order to make the world a more sustainable one. We've been fortunate to find a number of companies that hold the same views. Simple acts like buying a pair of eyeglasses can make a difference in so many lives, which is why we choose to partner with a long list of forward-thinking companies with the same views. Here are some of the many companies we associate with and a sample of the many ways they allow you to give back and help keep the world a better place.
TOMS has been a pioneer in the field of sustainable business. For every pair of TOMS eyeglasses you buy, they will provide a full eye examination by a trained professional to a person in need. Each patient will receive the treatment they need, whether it's a pair of eyeglasses, sight-saving surgery or medical treatment. TOMS is proud that they've restored the sight of over half a million people through this program.
Maui Jim works with a long list of charities, including Hale Makua Health Services, IMUA Family Services, Maui Arts & Cultural Center, Lions Club International, Women Helping Women Maui, Children's Home of Peoria, Peoria Friendship House. Their main philosophy is that they “believe in leaving the places we call home, better than we found them. We are deeply committed to supporting the communities we live and work in”.
Kate Spade works with Women in Entrepreneurship, which empowers women to transform their communities through business initiatives.
MODO spearheads the "Buy a Frame, Help a Child See" program, which provides early detection, intervention, and treatment to help needy children see their future clearly.
ECO began in 2009 with the ONE FRAME - ONE TREE program, partnering with NGO Trees for the Future. Since that date, they have donated and planted one tree for every frame they've sold. So far, ECO has planted over one and a half million trees.
