Social Impact Kodak Lens Vision Centres

Social Impact at Kodak Lens Vision Centres

Community engagement has always been an important part of what we do. We want to share with you our social impact initiative at Kodak Lens Vision Centres and ask for your help in fulfilling a local need. This year and in the future, we want to do even more to support the communities where we operate and we want to give YOU the opportunity to tell us how!

Our commitment is to engage with our team, customers and fans each month and tell you about a few needs in a local community where we operate. All we ask is for you to click, read about each of the needs, and then cast your VOTE for where our charitable contribution of $1000 will be allocated. You will be asked to enter your email so we can make sure everyone gets one vote. The vote will close on the 15th of each month and we’ll reach out shortly after that to let you know which need was fulfilled. Please see below our past contributions. Together, we can make a difference and help everyone See The Colours of Love and Life!

March’s Social Impact:

Need: Diaper Duty
Neighbourhood: Toronto
Date: Mar 2023

Dear Kodak Lens Toronto Eyecare team,

Many of the families we help are struggling to make ends meet right now. Your donation of diapers will help a few of these families get by for another few days without worry. Your donation and kindness is extra special to us and a huge help to the families we support throughout the year. We can’t say it enough, THANK YOU for your generosity!

Your’s Truly.

Why am I seeing this?

Because you’re a part of the Kodak Lens family of customers or fans! We want you to have a say in where our charitable contribution is allocated.

How do you pick the needs?

We partner with Troop, a social enterprise in Toronto to select the local needs we share with you. Troop is on a mission to build communities where basic needs don’t go unmet and we’re joining the mission.

Can I share a need for a local charity?

Yes! If you work with a charity or non-profit and you think they would benefit from sharing their needs with local businesses and customers, you can email the Troop team here: [email protected].

Why sponsor Team Canada U24 Ultimate

For a long time, Dr. Linda Tse has been making sure Reve Chan, U24 mixed athlete, and her family’s eyes are healthy and have excellent vision. Reve and her mom reached out to Dr. Linda Tse for support to aid Reve’s journey to compete at the WFDF 2019 World Under-24 Ultimate Championships. Instead of a personal donation, Dr. Linda Tse and her son, Taylor who is also an avid ultimate player and manager at Kodak Lens Vision Centres decided to sponsor Team Canada U24. As an ultimate player, and eye care professional, Taylor understands the importance of vision on the field and would like to support Team Canada U24 Ultimate to further spread the message of taking care of your gift of sight. With Taylor’s ultimate background and experience sponsoring other Ultimate programs (Toronto Rush, AUDL ultimate frisbee team) through the eyeTrust Network in 2015 and knowing some players on Team Canada, we feel it was right to support this community. Together, we can make a difference by providing Ultimate players, friends and their families visual solutions to ensure they’re seeing the best for success.
