CGO Hosts Eyewear Drive to Support OneSight in July



This July, CGO is excited to announce our partnership with OneSight, a global nonprofit dedicated to eradicating the vision care crisis. From Wednesday, July 17th, to Wednesday, July 31st, we will be hosting an eyewear drive to collect glasses for recycling and to support OneSight's mission. For every pair of glasses donated, EyeMed will contribute $5 in CGO's name to OneSight.

Drive Details:

  • Dates: July 17th - July 31st
  • Location: Donation bin located at the receptionists desk at the CGO office (750 Warrenville Rd., Suit 400, Lisle IL) 
  • What Donations Are Accepted? Any old or unused pieces of eyewear including children's glasses, glasses with broken lenses/frames and missing parts, prescription & non-prescription glasses, and sunglasses. 

Why Donate?

Our partnership with OneSight allows us to make a real difference in the lives of people who lack access to eyewear. Plus, with EyeMed's monetary contribution, every single donation helps fund eye exams, glasses, and the establishment of permanent vision centers in communities that need them the most.

The Impact of OneSight

Since its founding in 1988, OneSight has been at the forefront of solving the vision care crisis. The organization has reached over 38 million people in 53 countries through the dedication of donors, volunteers, partners, and sponsors. OneSight’s comprehensive approach ensures that people receive the care they need, no matter where they live.

Join Us in Making a Difference

Your contribution, no matter how small, can have a significant impact. Help us support OneSight’s mission to give access to vision care and unleash the potential of 1.1 billion people worldwide. Together, we can make a difference and help people see life to the fullest.

Don’t forget to drop off your eyewear donations in the bin at the receptionist desk between July 17th and July 31st. Thank you for your generosity and support!

About Us

In order to make a positive impact in our community, CGO launched its new community service initiative, CGO Cares, in August 2022. This program was designed to show support for charitable organizations that are meaningful to our employees. During the first year of this initiative, we have supported 10 different organizations through donations and by hosting various community events such as toy drives, book drives, and food drives. Additionally, we have raised awareness for these organizations by having speakers come into the office and talk about their work and by giving our employees the option to take the afternoon off from work to volunteer at a nonprofit. To date, the organizations we've supported include Bernie’s Book Bank, Susan G. Komen, Help Heroes of Ukraine, Lisle Township Food Pantry, Abby's Blankets of Strength, Loaves & Fishes, Cycle for Strength, PAWS Chicago, Link Unlimited Scholars, & Big Brothers Big Sisters of Will & Grundy Counties. Our efforts have been successful in making a difference in our local communities and furthering the mission of these organizations. We look forward to continuing our commitment to community service initiatives that benefit those in need and demonstrate our core values as a company.
