ABB OPTICAL GROUP Celebrates Fifth Anniversary of ABB Cares Program; Over $50,000 Has Been Awarded to Charities Since 2014
Eye care professionals are encouraged to nominate community organizations for grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. Applications open August 1


CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (June 14, 2018) – From a charity benefitting under-served children in North Carolina to vision clinics for the visually impaired in California, ABB OPTICAL GROUP's signature community grants program has made an impact on numerous non-profit organizations from coast to coast the past four years with over $50,000 awarded in grants. Applications for this year's ABB Cares program open Wednesday, August 1, 2018.

“We are so excited to celebrate the fifth anniversary of this remarkable program and reflect on its success over the past four years,” said ABB OPTICAL GROUP President Brad Weinbrum. “Year after year, we receive outstanding nominations from eye care professionals who are seeking to further make an impact on their communities.
