Volunteer

 

Our community of volunteers gives people a way to share their experiences with donation and transplantation while giving hope to others living with corneal blindness.

Public Speaking

Telling your story is a powerful way to inspire others to become registered donors and increase public acceptance of donation. Opportunities include speaking at community events, religious or spiritual gatherings, service clubs, social groups, schools and your work place. We also invite individuals to speak at Southern Eye Bank events and employee gatherings so that others can see the real impact of our mission.

Events

Southern Eye Bank hosts a number of community and fundraising events in our service areas throughout the year—from our Strikes for Sight bowling tournament to our Gift of Sight celebration—to help raise critical funds for our charitable services and connect people touched by the gift of sight. Volunteers can assist with planning and coordination, gift-in-kind and sponsorship solicitations, assembling and mailing invitations, promoting with your social media networks or supporting day-of activities. You can even host your own fundraiser! Find events happening in your area on our Events page.

Office Support

If you enjoy a quieter volunteer experience, our office support opportunities provide just that. Between events and the thousands of letters we send each year to donor families, recipients and contributors, we are always in need of additional help to support our outreach efforts. Volunteers can choose to participate regularly or when time allows in your schedule. Examples of office support needed includes folding, stuffing and labeling letters, assembling packages and information packets, giveaway inventory, typing and data entry and more.
