When it comes to eye care, our vision has no boundaries.
At Nationwide Vision, we dedicate our lives to serving your vision needs. As members of your community, our team also believes in sharing our good fortune with those in our neighboring communities who need help the most. With that in mind, we’ve focused our charitable-giving efforts on a number of child-related causes:
Arizona Community Foundation
Nationwide Vision is a proud financial supporter of the Arizona Community Foundation. The ACF focuses on “leading, serving and collaborating to mobilize enduring philanthropy for a better Arizona.” It awards millions of dollars in grants to nonprofit organizations, government agencies and educational institutions throughout our state.
Pappas Kids Schoolhouse Foundation
The Pappas Kids Schoolhouse Foundation focuses on funding Children First Academy so that homeless and underprivileged children can succeed and grow in a positive educational environment. Since 2007, the foundation has provided more than 300 scholarships for homeless and underprivileged children to give them the opportunity to attend Arizona-certified private schools. Nationwide Vision assists in ensuring that the students at Children First Academy have healthy eyes, food and holiday cheer throughout the year.
Every year our team visits the Tempe and Phoenix campuses of the Children First Academy to provide vision screenings for all 500 students. Each year we produce and distribute 300 glasses to children in need.
Frame it Forward
Nationwide Vision is not only committed to delivering quality patient care, but it is also dedicated to helping the local community. For over 30 years, Nationwide Vision and its employees have partnered with the Arizona Lion’s Club in order to collect unwanted eyeglasses and sunglasses from local members of the community. Whether they are broken, out of date, or simply have an old prescription Nationwide Vision welcomes any and all donations. Once all donations have been collected, they are placed in the caring hands of the Lion’s Club volunteers who then take the time to sort and repurpose the used eyewear. Following the refurbishment process, the eyewear is distributed to lower income individuals throughout the community. In addition, Nationwide Vision also partners with ABC 15 twice a year in our Frame it Forward Campaign to further increase exposure for the donation drive. Why do we do it? Because here at Nationwide Vision we are in the business of caring for the eyes of our communities, which is why we believe good vision is something that everyone deserves.
Drop off your old glasses at any Nationwide Vision location and the Lion's Club will make sure they get to someone who needs them.
