New Look Eyewear has been a leader in the optical field for over 25 years. We firmly believe that it is our duty to give back to the community. That is why we get involved each year with causes whose missions are to simplify eye care for the community.
Each year, the Eye Disease Foundation helps numerous persons see better by contributing to the funding of several research projects on eye diseases. The foundation also has developed an awareness program called “Participe pour voir”.
New Look Eyewear has proudly been supporting the Eye Disease Foundation for more than six years now. With the ongoing involvment of New Look's President, Mr. Martial Gagné, also Chairman of the board of the foundation, New Look Eyewear is now a major partner of the Eye Disease Foundation.
An active contribution!
Each year, New Look Eyewear actively participates in various projects on behalf of the foundation such as benefit dinner and shows, contest ticket sales, and the “Participe pour voir” program.
Launched in February 2006, the objective of the « Participe pour voir » program is to raise the awareness of parents throughout Québec regarding the importance of their children’s sight.
Each year, the Eye Disease Foundation visits several elementary schools in Québec to screen children for vision problems and eye diseases. The program also provides free eyeglasses to children whose parents cannot afford to purchase them.
This program is possible due to the generosity of volunteer optometrists and of its major partners, such as New Look Eyewear and Essilor.
To date, New Look Eyewear has contributed more than $200,000 to the foundation. The reason for this success is the devoted team of New Look employees who have taken this very important cause to heart.
