VisionWorks Mission to Help Comox Valley’s Hungry, Homeless, and Hurting

Help us raise money and awareness for an important cause

It’s been a challenging time for all of us, but for the people who are experiencing homelessness in our country, it has been a particularly tough time.

Unfortunately, the Comox Valley is not immune to the issue of homelessness and the need for support of these resources continues to grow. Sadly, the number of seniors becoming homeless or precariously housed is on the rise in our community and it is largely due to the lack of affordable housing in our area.

This is why VisionWorks Optometry is participating in the “Coldest night of the year” charity event. Our goal is to help Comox’s hungry, homeless, and hurting.  The proceeds from this event will go to Comox’s local charities to support the programs for people who are struggling through poverty and homelessness within the Comox Valley.

On February 20, 2021 at 3pm, the VisionWorks Optometry’s staff will be closing our office for the day to walk for this worthy cause. The coldest night of the year is a COVID-safe virtual event. We will be walking apart but working as a team to raise money and awareness for the plight of the homeless population in our community.

VisionWorks Optometry is committed to upholding our core beliefs, which includes the importance of making a difference and supporting our community through philanthropy. The coldest night of the year is a nationwide charity event that will bring our community together through helping the most vulnerable people who truly need us in this time of crisis.

Homelessness in our community is a growing problem. And although we cannot eradicate this pressing issue, we can help support the charities that raise money to support the most vulnerable people in our society.

“VisionWorks Optometry’s core belief of supporting our community is what drives us to participate in events like this,” says Marita Brunback-Stromvik, VisionWorks Team Captain. “It’s incredible; I’m so thankful for the support we have received so far.  We are so much stronger as a community when we pull together to assist those in need.  We feel this work is so important.”
