Hey, feel that tap on your shoulder, it's me and I need your help! That's right very few of us can turn away from a tap on the shoulder asking for help. But this is easy, really easy. Just be who you are and do what you do, but do it with a neighbor who is legally blind and can no longer drive. When you get your groceries, pick up a few things for them, when you get your prescriptions, grab theirs too! EASY! If you like to read or visit the library, take them with you, go to a concert or see a show... yes, they like those things too even if they cannot see all the action.

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.
