As a Good Corporate Citizen, the Company is Changing Lives in the United States and Around the World
DULUTH, Ga. (Aug. 12, 2020) – National Vision Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: EYE) (“National Vision” or the “Company”), one of the nation’s largest optical retailers providing quality, affordable eye care and eyewear, has launched its first-ever philanthropic impact report, A World Worth Seeing, which details how the Company – including through the generosity of its associates and network of doctors – is transforming the lives of people in the United States and around the world.
“This is our first-ever attempt to codify a comprehensive overview of National Vision’s philanthropic programs and impact,” said Reade Fahs, Chief Executive Officer at National Vision. “We have always thought of ourselves as a fast growing social business providing low cost healthcare to uninsured Americans and those living on very tight budgets. And, we’ve tried to use the success that comes from our mission, along with our unique skills as optical people, to find ways to bring eyeglasses to those who couldn’t afford them otherwise in America and abroad.”
The report focuses on three core areas:
The comprehensive report represents decades of partnership, commitment and dedication by the Company, its associates and network of doctors. Although it focuses primarily on the Company’s impact through 2019, the report also highlights the Company’s strategic response to COVID-19 and its approach to providing help during the pandemic.
“The challenges and stresses of the past several months most certainly reminds us all of what is really important in life and reinforces that the source of true fulfillment often resides in helping those less fortunate,” Fahs said. “As a good corporate citizen, National Vision is committed to making a positive difference, locally and globally.”
