At Parker & Co Eyewear we believe in giving back to the people and organisations in our field. Here are a few of the charities we are involved with that are helping to improve lives through the gift of better sight.
Blind Foundation Guide Dogs
Blind Foundation Guide Dogs give freedom and independence to people who are blind or have low vision. These dogs are specially bred and require unique training to become working guide dogs.
To help this cause we’ll donate $1.00 for every eye exam to the Blind Foundation to assist with the training of Guide Dogs.
So you can take comfort in the knowledge that when you’re having your eyes tested at Parker & Co Eyewear you’re helping to improve the life of someone who’s visually impaired.
Essilor Vision Care Foundation in New Zealand.
We work with The Essilor Vision Care Foundation to help improve local school children’s vision by donating free access to our eye care services. Our Dispenser Lindsay recently spent the day in Gisborne to help screen 320 local school children.
It’s our shared aim to help give these children better life opportunities through improved sight.
Restoring the sight of our South Pacific cousins.
We’re helping to restore sight in the pacific through our involvement with VOSO (Volunteer Ophthalmic Services Overseas). VOSO are a New Zealand charitable trust that’s been providing free eye aid to the Pacific for over 30 years.
Through sight-saving surgery (cataract) and the distribution of thousands of pairs of glasses each year, VOSO helps to restore sight to those less fortunate in the Pacific Islands
We collect and donate unwanted glasses for this project. If you’ve got an old pair of glasses you’d like to donate please contact us on 09-524 8828.
