Midwest honors Dr. King with Day of Service celebration
This year, Midwest Eye-Banks celebrated Martin Luther King, Jr. Day with its own Day of Service. Staff at each of our affiliates chose a unique way to honor Dr. King’s legacy.
“I’m so pleased that Midwest Eye-Banks is supporting this holiday because I do think it speaks volumes about our culture and our values,” said Debbie May-Johnson, executive director of the Cleveland Eye Bank.
Executive Director, Debbie May-Johnson, and Ambassador and corneal Recipient, Deanna Hartman, discuss the importance of eye, organ and tissue donation.
The Cleveland Eye-Bank has two commercials airing on Fox 8. One features a corneal recipient, Deanna, with her 2 daughters (above). The second features the family of Michael, a 19 year old man that made his wishes known to his family that he wanted to be a donor when he passed away.
The Cleveland Eye Bank is a non-profit organization dedicated to restoring sight by providing tissue for transplantation, research, and teaching. The Cleveland Eye Bank serves 4.2 million people and over 60 area hospitals.
