Our dedication to improving lives by helping people see better starts at home in our local communities.
While it is paramount that we show our support to larger organizations, it is equally vital to show up and be present in local community outreach programs.
Throughout the year, we empower our associates to bring to us the organizations that mean the most to them in their communities. We organize in-store donation centers that welcome contributions from everyone. Over the years, we’ve made sizable donations to children’s hospitals, food banks, homeless shelters, and more.
