According to doublethedonation.com, “Corporate philanthropy is one of the major sources of nonprofit funding. Over the past few years corporate philanthropic programs have contributed about $15 billion annually to nonprofits throughout the United States.”

Amcon is proud to support our community via donations and participation in charitable events.  Recently, one of our employees used their discount to purchase readers for a free medical clinic in Jamaica. We have also made donations to the Lions Club, mission trips to Columbia and Mexico, and student organizations, in addition to providing products for various optical fairs and wellness training programs for low income areas. Annually, several of our employees participate in the “Walk to End Alzheimer’s”, “Pedal the Cause” and other such fundraisers. Keep up with us on Facebook to see details for future donations and events, and ways you can get involved.
