I've worked side-by-side with the Michigan Eye-Bank for almost a dozen years. They impress me with their level of commitment to the people they serve - the Eye-Bank doesn't just speak to community members, they are part of the community. In addition to helping restore vision, they work to prevent the need for their own services by encouraging health and safety in regards to people's eyes. Remarkable!
