ORGANIZATION: Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind

  • 299 people are interested

We are looking for volunteers in Maryland (especially Montgomery and Prince George's Counties), Virginia (especially in Annandale, Fairfax, Alexandria, and Arlington), and Washington, D.C. Volunteers visit individuals at their homes to help them pay bills and read mail. They also assist in shopping and other errands. They do not have to be able to drive our clients, but it is appreciated if they are able to do so.
