COVID-19 Help Needed: Grocery Shop for Visually Impaired Neighbor in Auburndale
Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired
The Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired is seeking a compassionate neighbor to help a kind man in Auburndale. The volunteer would need a car, and be willing to take a very funny, intelligent, visually impaired man to the store once a week. The volunteer should be prepared for a time commitment of 1-2 hours per week. If you are looking to make a huge impact on the life of a neighbor, look no further! Make a new friend and make someone's life a little easier. Please inquire with Alexandra if interested, at email@example.com or reply to this post.

Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired offers a number of services.
In our COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER PROGRAM, volunteers work one-to-one with visually impaired adults in their community, assisting with reading or shopping.
In each of our 33 peer-led SUPPORT GROUPS, individuals gather to share challenges and resources.
Elders with low vision can work with one of our VISION REHABILITATION SPECIALISTS to learn strategies for living with limited or no vision. Special focus on reading and writing, magnification, lighting, diabetes management, home safety and daily activities.
