Funeral Home Staff

 

Southern Eye Bank offers accurate organ donor information for funeral home staff. We work very closely with funeral homes in our region to ensure that each family’s wishes for donation are fulfilled.  The donation process allows families to find some comfort knowing their loved one has left a legacy for the living: the gift of sight. The gift of sight has a far-reaching impact on the lives of those still with us. We have heard many stories from the families of organ donors about how their gifts of sight are a source of solace for grieving families.
