Community Volunteers in Medicine(CVIM) celebrated 20 years of providing critical healthcare services to uninsured individuals and families in the Chester County region on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve, Newtown Square. Twenty-one new Pillar Society members were honored, showing the community’s passion for charitably supporting healthcare access in the region. To meet the demands of running a healthcare center that treated more than 4,000 patients last fiscal year, it takes every volunteer hour, gifts of every size, and ever expanding partnerships to live out our mission of providing healthcare, hope and healing for our patients. Thank you to each and every member of the CVIM family – you are saving lives and promoting well-being every day! Click to view photos from the evening.

Since 1996, the Eagles Charitable Foundation’s Eagles Eye Mobile and Eagles Glasses Lab have been making free vision screenings, eye exams and prescription glasses accessible to under-insured and uninsured children in the Greater Philadelphia area. The program has benefited more than 81,000 children and distributed more than 56,000 eyeglasses. Children of uninsured families are at risk for being left behind in school if their health and vision needs are not met so Eagles Eye Mobile teams up with CVIM twice each year to meet the vision needs of some of our youngest patients. The Eagles have their eyes on the prize this year – and now the kids at CVIM do, too!
