SVS Vision Partners With Coats for Kids Foundation

Poster with kids in coats drinking cocoaMount Clemens, MI – SVS Vision Optical Centers has partnered with the Coats For Kids Foundation to provide new coats for children this winter season.  To help raise enough funds to purchase the new coats, SVS Vision has created a cookbook filled with recipes provided by SVS Vision employees and suppliers.

The cookbook, Cookin’ with Vision, is available at any SVS Vision location for a donation of $10 or more. SVS will match a portion of your donation and give all profits from the sale of the cookbook to the Coats for Kids Foundation to help supply new coats for local kids.  The goal is to distribute coats to needy kids in Detroit and in the nine other states in which SVS has offices.

Paul Darby, President of the Coats for Kids Foundation said, “We are grateful and humbled by the generosity of the management team and all of the employees and suppliers who have become a part of our vision to lift kids who are disadvantaged up by giving them a new winter coat.   We hope that this will encourage other companies and organizations to take that important step in reaching out to help those in need this year.”

To find an SVS Vision Optical Center, visit or call 800-SVS-4600 (800-787-4600).  For more information on the Coats for Kids Foundation visit


UPDATE:   SVS staff is now distributing the 1,830 coats shipped to them to 30 schools in Detroit and sevral in their home town of Mt. Clemens, MI.
