Today is the day to step out of your comfort zone and try volunteering with a neighbor who is blind. It is really very easy and we will prepare you with everything you need to know. Most important is just be there when you say you will be there, pick up the phone and call them when you can, drop by with a cup of coffee, read their mail and pick up groceries. EASY!
