“Giving back” – it’s an important initiative that many companies have incorporated into their business model in an effort to support local nonprofits and causes, and one that is particularly important to AGT. Today we’re putting the spotlight on one of our community partners – the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation – to highlight their inspiring work.
About The Lighthouse Foundation
For those who are unfamiliar with the Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation, let’s get you up to speed! The Lighthouse Foundation provides vision and hearing services through education, detection, prevention and treatment. The organization is the only statewide provider of charitable vision and hearing care in Georgia – their services range from vision and hearing screenings to eye exams, surgeries and more. Last year alone, the Foundation served 159 counties in Georgia and provided over 15,000 services to uninsured and under-insured Georgians.
Supporting Their Cause
AGT partnered with the Lighthouse Foundation back in 2014 during “Audio Visual Month” in October. Our goal was to partner with an organization that benefits sight and sound, coinciding with our A/V integration practice in which we design and integrate meeting spaces that foster communication via sight and sound. The Lighthouse Foundation was a perfect match for our company, and we have proudly supported them since.
AGT employees volunteer in the Foundation’s Recycling Center on a regular basis, where we wash and sort eyeglasses and sunglasses that are later distributed to nursing homes, homeless shelters, migrant farmer camps and overseas on mission trips. We also provide the Foundation with donations of our own to help support their cause. Most recently, AGT donated a free cloud video conferencing account to the Lighthouse Foundation to help enhance their collaboration both internally and externally. It is our hope that we can help further expand the organization’s reach and influence through the power of video and visual collaboration – we look forward to supporting their cause for years to come!
