Peepers donates over $15,000 in product!!
Each season we discontinue TONS of 'not-so-great' selling models and put them on sale for our fabulous customers. When the inventory on these styles get down to the nitty-gritty, they are pulled from the current shelves and stored in our back warehouse. Every couple of months we begin to run out of room and need something to do with all of those frames....but what?!?
"MICHIGAN CITY, IN - Peepers Reading Glasses donated nearly 1,000 pairs of glasses-more than $15,000 in product-to multiple charitable ventures, including Soles4Souls and Himalayan Health.
"Charitable giving has been an important part of our corporation since its inception more than 100 years ago. Knowing that our products help individuals gain back their sight is truly inspirational. This is just one of the many reasons that our team loves what we do," said Alec and Lindsay Sammann, co-owners of Peepers Reading Glasses in a statement."
Here at Sammann Company, we love what we do and we're so glad to see that our products are on the faces of those that need them most.
A big THANK YOU to all of our wonderful customers! Your support allows us to contribute to these wonderful foundations!
Peace, LOVE, & Peepers :)

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
October is upon us, which means (here in Northern Indiana, at least) cool, crisp days, FOOTBALL, pumpkin patches and apple orchards, crunchy leaves and beautiful colors. It not only marks the beginning of fall, but...
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
According to breastcancer.org "About 1 in 8 women in the United States (12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime." In addition, they state that "For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer".
Breast cancer is a terrible disease that affects our mothers, daughters, wives, sisters and friends. Please join our efforts to help raise money to put an end to this devastating form of cancer.
