Volunteer Opportunities

Consider a team building opportunity by participating in an event like World Sight Day. Last year in Calgary, we took to downtown’s Stephen Avenue to raise awareness and remind people to put Vision First, joined by volunteers from Ovintiv (previously Encana). Together, we handed out 1,000 eyeglass cleaning cloths, wished even more people a happy World Sight Day, and reminded everyone to book an eye exam.
