Life is better when we make a new friend!


No, not responsible as ... you are in trouble, but are you accountable for your words and actions, are you reliable and ready to serve others? If you are, BESB wants you and others like you to help with your legally blind neighbors. It’s pretty easy, shopping with them or for them when you get your own shopping done, reading books, mail and periodicals. Calling when the weather is bad and asking if they are ok. Being a good friend and neighbor can’t get any easier. Call today!
