Help a person who is legally blind to manage their paper, mail and official documents. You will be a help and you can make a new friend too!

About

You can be a storm volunteer right in your own neighborhood. Not everyone can pick up stakes and travel to the storm stricken areas of our nation, but you can do a lot right here are home to help your neighbor. Individuals who are legally blind and/or elder blind don’t have the chance to run to the grocery store for extra bread and milk, to the pharmacy for a spare prescription or to the market for a candle or flashlight - they are always in the dark. But you CAN help. Sign up today to be a BESB Buddy - someone who develops a long-term sustainable friendship with a neighbor making the world a better place and savoring the love of a new friend. Just read their mail, friendly visit, shop with them or for them and see how your perspective and your life will change!
