Hauppauge, NY – August 2013 – Eyewear industry leader ClearVision Optical recently participated in Camp Day at Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center’s Camp Kehilla as part of the internship program’s philanthropic outreach.
For the 4th consecutive year, ClearVision’s summer interns and ClearVision managers participated in this day of fun and festivities. Camp Kehilla, located at the Henry Kaufman campgrounds in Wheatley Heights, NY, provides social/recreational camping activities for high functioning children and teens with special needs and disorders, and other developmental disabilities.
“Camp Kehilla offers much more than fun in the sun for our summer interns,” said Jennifer Trakhtenberg, ClearVision’s Senior Talent Leader. “It provides an opportunity for the interns to take the skills they learn in the office, such as flexibility, creativity, and leadership, and use them to mentor the younger generation. The day also reinforces the CV Way – having a positive impact on our community and making each day better for someone else.”
The interns prepared and facilitated all of the activities for the young campers, which included a water balloon toss, a mummy wrap, relay race games, and bubbles galore.
A considerable part of ClearVision’s year-round intern program is to support the company’s philanthropic outreach. Initiatives include volunteering for ClearVision’s annual Healthy Snack Sale and Employee Garage Sale, which raises money for The / Long Island Cares, Inc.,
