Eight NH optical offices recently joined forces to help stop hunger in their communities. MVC Eye Care, Evision Eyecare & Eye See Vision Carejust ended their 2nd annual “Give & Receive” Food Drive in order to spread awareness for the NH Food Bank’s worthwhile cause, as well as to help give back to their patients for their patronage. More than 3,150 individual food items were collected during our efforts.
Words can’t express how grateful we are to be a local business with the opportunity to positively impact our community in these tough times. I couldn’t be more thrilled to announce that we’ve exceeded our 2020 goal! We were captivated in seeing how supportive our patients were to contribute and donate to our efforts again this year.”
Dr. Kevin Chauvette, Owner
Last year’s “Give & Receive” Food Drive collected more than 1,600 food items. With the help of our patients and staff, we doubled our donations this year! On Tuesday, December 15, 2020, the MVC team delivered 2,889 pounds of food to the NH Food Bank – equalling more than 2,408 meals for those in need.
Seeing our teams work together to help make a difference in our neighborhoods is always exciting. I am proud of how hard our eye care professionals worked to get the word out about us accepting food items and I look forward to seeing if we can reach our goal next year.”
