When you have an opportunity to give back, do you? Our teammate and benefits team leader Emily Corio, in our Brown & Brown Insurance of Northern California office, has ties to the Paradise, CA area, and was moved to help a young man who lost everything in the Camp fire, including his glasses. He is legally blind, and was using electrical tape and an old pair of lenses to see. Three hours after Emily contacted EyeMed Vision Care, this young man, Brock, had a brand new pair of glasses. We are proud to work with teammates who go above and beyond and to have partnerships with companies such as Eyemed, who quickly respond in crisis. This is the true meaning of Thanksgiving.
For those in need, EyeMed Vision Care has a special line set up to assist people affected by the wildfires. You don’t need to be an EyeMed member, and they will work with people on a case-by-case basis. The telephone number is 1-888-935-4589.
