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.
