CVI Laser Optics Hosts Pillow Drive for Homeless
April 5, 2021
CVI Laser Optics, part of IDEX Optical Technologies, recently partnered with Cuidando Los Niños (CLN) to support homeless and under housed families in the local Albuquerque, New Mexico area. After engaging with CLN leaders, CVI Laser Optics hosted a pillow drive for families in the community.
Over the span of three weeks, the CVI Laser Optics team came together to donate hundreds of pillows and pillowcases for the organization. With matching gifts from IDEX Optical Technologies leaders, the team was able to donate 442 pillows and 442 pillowcases total!
CVI Laser also partnered with the IDEX Foundation to donate an additional $5,000 to help CLN support its mission to break the cycle of homelessness for children and families.
“Cuidando Los Niños is a special organization and I am so proud of our team’s generosity. Homelessness is widespread in our community and we are excited to partner with CLN on future projects,” said Brittny Goodwin, Human Resources Manager.
Cuidando Los Niños, which means “caring for the children,” aims to break the cycle of homelessness for children and families by providing high quality early childhood education, therapeutic services, supportive housing, and parent education.
