NuVision’s Community Service team is committed to getting involved in the areas we serve to support our community and bring NuVision’s goodwill to our local charities and their causes.
LIGHT THE NIGHT
On September 19th, the 10th Annual Light the Night Walk at Angels Stadium raised funds and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Light the Night Walk is an annual event to raise funds for cures. It’s the nation’s night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of patients and their families. NuVision has raised more than $6,274 for this cause.
On October 4th, NuVision supported the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) by donating yellow NuVision bags which were handed out to approximately 1,000 walkers who gathered at the Huntington Beach Pier. This 4th Annual event, Orange County 5K NAMIWalks for the Minds of America raised more than $128,000 and benefits families who have been affected by mental illness.
On October 17th, NuVision’s team “NuVision’s NuTomorrows” participated in the 18th annual CHOC Walk at Disneyland Resort. As a team, NuVision raised and donated more than $2,751. This is the 5th year that NuVision has had a team at the CHOC Walk.
CHILDREN’S MIRACLE NETWORK
From July to December, NuVision raised $4,327 for Children’s Miracle Network.
COLETTE’S CHILDREN’S HOME
NuVision also supported Colette’s Children’s Home during the 2010 Holiday season by adopting the recipients at the home and providing the items on their wish list.
TOYS FOR TOTS
Members and employees filled the bins at our branches for the Toys for Tots during November and December. For more than 50 years, the Marines have been collecting toys for under-privileged kids, and NuVision was proud to participate again by being a collection site for unwrapped toys and gifts.
NuVision has adopted 130 children through Project Love. Project Love has been around since 1963 aiding Navajo and Hopi children from Northern Arizona reservations. Originally a McDonnell Douglas project, Boeing now coordinates this annual event. NuVision employees ‘adopted’ school children and provided gifts from a wish list.
NuVision donated $2,500 and 10 PCs to this Huntington Beach based organization.
ASIAN YOUTH CENTER
NuVision donated 19 PCs to Asian Youth Center.
NuVision partnered with E1 Financial to raise $1,500 which was donated the American Red Cross Wildfire Relief Fund. NuVision also activated our Emergency Response Loan in response to the wildfires. If you or a family member were affected by the recent wildfires, please call us at 800.444.6327 for more information about this program.
