Alonso Group, within its area of Corporate Social Responsibility, has delivered to the association Aportem a total of 134 glasses for the NGO Visió Sense Fronteres. Stock Logistic, a company that belongs to the business group, has been one of the most active in participating in this solidarity campaign that began last February.
Under the slogan “For more people to see as you see”, Alonso Group joined this initiative led by Aportem. For example, in each of the Stock Logistic headquarters, all types of lenses were collected until this very relevant figure was achieved. The involvement of each and every one of the group’s workers has been fundamental for this, and they have made this proposal a success. In this way, it has been possible to gather glasses of all types and sizes: prescription, folding or sunglasses without a case that will be aimed at the people who need it most in developing countries.
Once the campaign is over, the glasses will be checked for their condition and prescription. Later, they will be given to people who have difficulty accessing these types of objects due to their economic situation and who, on the other hand, are an essential element for visual health.
