Past Events at The Eye-Bank.
Each year The Eye-Bank is excited to welcome new volunteers and offers a Training Workshop for cornea transplant recipients, donor family members and supporters who wish to participate in community outreach efforts. Our volunteers make a big contribution toward helping us reach the wider community by participating in tabling events, legislative efforts, health fairs and school education programs.
The two-hour training workshop provides information about The Eye-Bank’s mission, history and organization, facts about eye donation and ways volunteers can help educate the public about the importance of signing-up in the New York State Donate Life Registry.
