Volunteer Opportunity with Midlands Eye Care Clinic

SC Mission 2011: Midlands was a monumental experience for healthcare in the Midlands. The event served more than 2,000 patients and brought awareness to the needs of the many under insured and uninsured residents.

As a result of the Mission, the Midlands Eye Care Clinic was formed out of a partnership with Palmetto Health, United Way of the Midlands, SC Optometric Physicians Association and the SC Department of Health & Environmental Control. The clinic is housed in the Richland County Health Department at 2000 Hampton Street, Second Floor, Columbia, SC 29204.

Volunteers are needed during the Midlands Eye Care Clinic’s operating hours (the first and third Tuesday of the month from noon – 5 pm) to help assist patients with paper work and eyeglass fitting and measurements.
