By Allison Schaefers

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, May 18, 2014

~~<p class="p1"><strong>QUESTION</strong>: How important are charitable activities to LensCrafters?&nbsp;</p>
<p class="p1"><strong>ANSWER</strong>: It's extremely important to corporate and as such is one of the first things that new employees learn about this company. Locally, we are very active in OneSight, which, as our company's charitable organization, has provided vision care to millions of people worldwide. Our Hawaii stores collect and recycle donated eyewear. We send it to our corporate office, and they send it to international clinics. I'd say that we've collected several hundred glasses at the Windward LensCrafters and a few thousand statewide.&nbsp;</p>
