As the founder of Salus University’s Looking Out for Kids (LOFK) vision care charity fundraiser, one of Dr. Susan Oleszewski’s primary roles was to ensure that there were enough resources every year to provide comprehensive vision care services and eyeglasses to disadvantaged children in the region. Fortunately, Dr. Oleszewski developed a long-standing relationship with Alan Lindy, president of Lindy Communities, which has proven to be a huge benefit for the LOFK program ever since.
