Nonprofit that grants technology to people with uncorrectable sight loss seeks Wisconsin and North Dakota board members

Eye-Link Foundation (eye-link.org), a 501(c)3 that grants technology and training to non-veterans with vision loss, is opening its doors in Wisconsin and North Dakota.

The foundation is looking for three board members for Wisconsin and North Dakota who could dedicate approximately one hour per month to procuring and delivering adaptive equipment. One board member would handle Treasurer duties and the other two would be a members at large, handling general duties as summarized below.

Board members meet quarterly to handle applications for assistive hardware and software packages to Wisconsin and North Dakota residents who are dealing with uncorrectable sight loss, or who are Blind. These highly specialized adaptive technologies give a "voice" to text on monitors, documents, mail, food & prescription labels, restaurant menus, magazines, books, classroom notes, smart phones, and other devices.

Eye-Link is ready to change lives in Wisconsin and North Dakota. If you’d like to be part of this effort, and for more information, call Jim Justesen at 763-561-6967 or go to http://mn.eye-link.org/.
