Volunteer Your Way to a Great Day!
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!

Holiday shopping can be fun and we can make it even better when you bargain hunt with a buddy. Take a person who is legally blind to the store when you go. They just need a little help to read the size tags or maybe a price tag in a poorly lit store. Then you can grab a bite to eat and head home with your bargains and your buddy and a little something extra - the knowledge that you have done something truly special for someone else.

Requirements to be a great volunteer include:

  • a desire to help others;

  • a pleasant demeanor;

  • a good reading/speaking voice;

  • average reading skills;

  • organizational or planning abilities;

  • a good driving record;

  • a clear criminal history;

  • two references

  • access to a car with proof of insurance;

  • a minimum of $50/100k liability and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
