Headlines VSP Global and Glam4Good Partner for Charity Published 3 years ago on June 25, 2018 By INVISION Staff Share Tweet They’re bringing vision care, eyewear, clothing and fashion accessories to those in need. (Press Release) RANCHO CORDOVA, CA – A charitable collaboration, first developed through Hurricane Harvey outreach, is now taking formal shape in a year-long effort to provide access to comprehensive eye exams, prescription glasses, beauty and fashion items where they are needed most. VSP Global, which includes the nation’s largest not-for-profit vision benefits company, and GLAM4GOOD, the award-winning empowerment platform and non-profit organization, announced that they are joining forces to make a greater impact in the communities they serve. After Hurricane Harvey, VSP Global joined GLAM4GOOD in Houston, TX, to help 750 teachers and educators who had lost everything. GLAM4GOOD organized a “shopping spree for free,” and local VSP network doctors, all of whom had practices damaged or destroyed by the hurricane, volunteered to provide no-cost eye exams with prescription glasses made onsite with the VSP Global Eyes of Hope mobile eye care clinic. This year, the two organizations partnered again in San Juan, Puerto Rico, eight months after Hurricane Maria devastated the island. San Jorge Children’s Hospital patient floors were transformed into eye exam rooms and mini-boutiques filled with clothing, accessories, toys and designer eyewear for pediatric patients and their families.
