Donor Remembrance Ceremony
You are invited to join us at Morristown Hosptial (Auditorium A) for our Donor Remembrance Ceremony on March 12, 2014. The ceremony is an opportunity for donor families to come together and share memories of those who have given the gift of sight to others. There will be a Remembrance Table if you would like to bring a photo, poem or other memento of your loved one to display and share with others.
You can RSVP here.
The Lions Eye Bank of New Jersey is a subsidiary of Midwest Eye-Banks, a charitable, not-for-profit organization dedicated to the restoration of sight. We recover, evaluate and distribute human eye tissue for transplantation.
As part of our mission, we support preliminary research into the causes and cures of blinding eye conditions. Through public and professional education programs, we encourage people to learn about eye, organ and tissue donation. We believe education is the key to making an informed decision about donation, and is also an important way for us to secure funding for the community services we provide. We also provide humanitarian aid to those unable to afford transplantation procedures, both at home and abroad, by waiving our service fees when a charitable need exists.
The Lions Eye Bank of New Jersey is accredited by
the Eye Bank Association of America (EBAA).
