FT. WAYNE, IN – EYE PRO, Inc. world leader in eyewear and makers of WINK-EASE, VIEWkeepers, Fresh-Ease, and Wink-Ease Dark continues its commitment to helping others.
Renee Lofland, EYE PRO’s Director of Customer Support, heard about a local fundraiser for Charis House, who assists and provides for women and children experiencing a homeless crisis in Fort Wayne, Allen County and the nine surrounding areas. Renee rallied the troops at EYE PRO, asking everyone to clean out closets, get friends and families involved, and collect donations for Charis House.
“It seemed like a perfect fit for all of us,” said Lofland. “In an office staffed with women who have families, it just made sense to help other women and children find a fresh start through Charis House.” “They need a lot of assistance with their mission to not only find relief from homelessness, but also help these families heal and move forward,” she continued.
In addition to providing a place for women and children to stay, the 78-bed Charis House provides free programs which include assistance in finding jobs and housing, building life and parenting skills, and learning how to experience emotional stability and better navigate life’s challenges. Charis House is part of the Rescue Mission of Fort Wayne, whose mission is to provide restorative care for men, women and children in homeless crisis. Annually, more than 216,000 meals and 46,000 nights of lodging are provided, in addition to goal-oriented programs, job readiness training, and spiritual, emotional and physical healing.

We all have a lot to be thankful for here at EYE PRO, and it only seems right to give back in any way we can when we are so fortunate,” noted Brenda Fishbaugh, President. “I think it’s our duty as members of society and the world at large to help those in need whenever and wherever we can.”
