The ASCRS Foundation is excited to kick off National Volunteer Week today! Our international and domestic missions - delivering humanitarian eye care to those most in need, are made possible through the generous support and volunteerism of our Foundation family.
This year, we are also thrilled to spotlight our Operation Sight volunteers through our EYEcon recognition program. Operation Sight is fueled by the compassion and dedication of our ever-growing volunteer network. Stay tuned throughout the week as we spotlight nominated EYEcons for their life-altering work, and reveal a NEW volunteer spotlight interview, speaking to the program’s impact!
We invite you to follow the digital celebration on ASCRS Foundation social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter) as we recognize the leaders, who share their time and talent to make cataract care accessible to those who would otherwise go without support. Help us celebrate you and your colleagues by re-sharing, commenting and tagging us @ascrsfoundation.
As 2021 unfolds, we remain inspired by the ongoing support of our Foundation volunteers. During the difficult past year they've risen to every challenge, helping to fulfill the Foundation's mission, and making an immeasurable difference in the lives of countless patients. The need has never been greater and we are so thankful for all you do.
This National Volunteer Week, we hope you'll join us as we showcase the power you harness within the Ophthalmology community. Your single act of volunteerism benefits the patients, their families and the local community. Thank you!
