Support GROW to Protect a Vision

The GROW fund started in 2005, and since then it has provided excellent vision clinics for workers and their families in the area where GROW bananas are grown.

Like the GROW dental clinics, volunteers go down to Mexico to help coordinate and manage the vision clinics for those who would like their eyesight evaluated. A worker’s eyesight is extremely important on the job, but poor vision also impacts their lives. Every year GROW provides hundreds of pairs of glasses to bring a clearer world to these workers.

Showing your customers that their purchases of GROW bananas support causes like these will give them more incentive and a humane reason to buy. Placing a well laid out display about how purchasing GROW bananas can help communities in Mexico is a great way to spell out all of the benefits to your customers.

It’s important to note that these clinics are made possible by the help of Project Amigo, a nonprofit partner who works extensively to make these clinics possible! Let your customers know that they can volunteer with Project Amigo in order to support GROW further! (To learn more about different volunteer opportunities with Project Amigo please visit their website.)

Not only is GROW a great cause for your customers and employees to support, studies have also shown that fruit may lower the risk of age-related macular degeneration, which is a primary cause of vision loss as we grow older. Keeping your customers aware of this benefit may also make them see a new perspective on how bananas can protect their health.
