Volunteer with the Casey Eye Institute (Casey) Community Outreach Team!

Through the generous support of our program donors and with the dedicated service of the Casey Community Outreach Volunteer Team, we will be partnering with Wallace to provide free eye screenings to adults aged 18 years and older to decrease preventable blindness for at-risk community members.

About Wallace:

Over 30 years ago, a physician named James Reuler persuaded a handful of other doctors to join him in making medical visits to uninsured homeless and low-income residents of downtown Portland. Dr. Reuler named this fledgling organization The Wallace Medical Concern in memory of his patient Edwin B. Wallace, whose bequest helped to fund the group’s early expenses.

Mr. Wallace was a maker of hand-crafted fishing rods. In his honor, Dr. Reuler carried his medical supplies to patient visits in a fishing tackle box. Together he and a growing team of volunteer medical professionals worked hard to meet the most urgent needs of vulnerable women and men who had no other access to health care.
