“Never before has our region and the rest of the country faced such a challenging time. It wasn’t a question of if we would help those around us, but how,” said David Stupay, Envision Dallas executive director. “It quickly became clear that we could have the greatest impact utilizing our amazing sewing team to make and distribute cloth face masks. It’s something we are committed to doing as the need arises.”
Envision Dallas’ efforts have been met with an outpouring of appreciation from recipients as well as coverage from the local media. On April 15, the Dallas Business Journal included Envision Dallas in an article about DFW manufacturers that have made a shift to producing personal protection equipment.
Envision Dallas is currently operating as an essential business due to its federal and military contracts – as is the case for all Envision locations, including Envision Industries (www.envisionus.com/Fueling-Our-Mission/Envision-Industries) and Envision Xpress military retail stores (/www.envisionus.com/Fueling-Our-Mission/Envision-Xpress).
Staying connected with you during COVID-19:

Maintaining a strong connection helps battle isolation in an already vulnerable population. A social media strategy was developed to utilize livestreaming as well as pre-recorded videos to create virtual classes, presentations and activities. Guests include Envision staff members from programs, arts, professional education, public education, workforce development, research, low vision rehabilitation services, Envision Industries and more. We are dedicated to keeping our Envision family engaged and energized by making programs and initiatives accessible to you – albeit in different forms – wherever you may be.
