You can measure success by helping a neighbor who is legally blind. This wonderful and chatty lady who raises birds and formerly worked as an assembly line worker making tape measures would love to have a friend to take her grocery shopping and to the mall - she hasn't been to West Farms in 5 years! You can help and make a new friend at the same time. This lady loves to walk for exercise!
