Quick Take: The McGee Group announces several new products and initiatives honoring the life and legacy of co-founder Jenny Lynn
Specifics: Each year, five percent of the net profits from The McGee Group’s Jenny Lynn Eyewear are allocated to support the work of the Jenny Lynn Foundation, which uses those funds to support organization that better the lives of women. In 2023, the Foundation will partner with WellSpring Living to support the mission of “transforming lives of those at risk or victimized by sexual exploitation.” This is the second consecutive year the Foundation has worked with WellSpring Living, having donated about $7,000 in 2022. In addition, The McGee Group will donate complimentary glasses to anyone who goes through WellSpring Living’s program in 2023.
Matt McGee, EVP of The McGee Group, said, “When it came time to decide which non-profit to partner with first, it was an obvious choice to work with WellSpring Living. One of the many philanthropic things Jenny Lynn did in her beautiful life was to be active in the WellSpring organization in the early years of its existence. There is no better way to honor her legacy and stay true to the mission of the Jenny Lynn Foundation than by continuing to support the work of this inspiring organization.”
