C&NW wall clock

Remember the C&NW with this 13 ¾” battery powered clock made exclusively for the Society by the Chicago Lighthouse. Requires 1 AA battery, not included. Founded in 1906 on Chicago’s West Side, The Chicago Lighthouse has been a pioneer in innovation across the areas of vision care, rehabilitation, education, employment and technology for 111 years. The Chicago Lighthouse, first named the Improvement Association for Blind People, was founded by a group of socially prominent Chicago women out of a growing concern for the future of the city’s blind community. Early activities included collecting donated food and clothing from area women’s clubs, as well as teaching employable skills like weaving and carpentry for permanent job attainment. Through two world wars and the worst economic depression in history, the organization continued to provide opportunities for employment, empowerment and independence to individuals facing life with vision loss. Over the next several decades, The Lighthouse’s mission grew to include clinical vision care with the establishment of the first low vision rehabilitation clinic in the Midwest in the early 1950s. In 1955, The Lighthouse opened the doors of its new facility in Chicago’s Medical District, dedicated by world-renowned advocate for the deaf and blind Helen Keller. The 1960s and ’70s introduced a broad array of new services in schooling, vocational training and support for individuals with multiple disabilities. In 1977, The Lighthouse earned an exclusive clock manufacturing contract from the federal government and they continue to produce the clocks you see in almost all government offices today. Due to their exacting quality control standards, their name has become synonymous with the finest, most durable wall clocks available worldwide at competitive prices. Did you know that more than 70% of people between the ages of 18 and 65 who are blind or visually impaired are not employed? When you purchase a Chicago Lighthouse timepiece, you are purchasing a product assembled at their factory in Chicago, IL that employs over 20 people who are blind, some with additional disabilities. Additionally, they have established a partnership with the Veterans Administration that has further expanded the organization’s mission to help with a growing demographic in need, that of our Veterans. Today, The Chicago Lighthouse serves more than 67,000 people each year. Their nationally prominent low vision clinic has become a world-class example of comprehensive rehabilitation and demonstrates their evolving role as a pioneer in vision care innovation.
