About

That's right, people are talking and this time it is all good. So, let's give them something to talk about and let's make it YOU!

There is a close knit population of working and retired business people, who are legally or perhaps totally blind living in theWethersfieldarea. They are a vibrant group of socially active individuals who need a little help with occasional transportation like shopping or vision dependent tasks that cannot be accommodated with technology. Some just want to meet more new people and broaden their circle of friends.

A few of them have great volunteers who make every day special... and they are talking and bragging about them ... now EVERYONE wants to have a volunteer buddy and I need you!
