Dear Family and Friends:
We are less than a week away from the Carroll Center for the Blind's 7th Annual Walk for Independence. Thank you for giving. If you haven't made a contribution yet there is still time.
The Center is one of the nation’s oldest facilities training those with vision loss how to live and work as independently as possible. Established in the 1930s, it has a rich history of pioneering initiatives and programs for the blind and visually impaired.
Each year the Carroll Center serves 5,000 children and adults of all ages and stages of blindness with a multitude of programs, including intensive residential vocational rehabilitation programs designed to enable clients to either retain or find work. Many clients attend Carroll's programs with government funding, but such funding only covers about 70 percent of the programs' costs. The Center therefore relies on contributions from generous donors like yourself to cover the shortfall.
Vision loss is devastating, which is why organizations like the Carroll Center are so important in giving consumers the skills to cope as well as the physical and emotional support to believe in themselves. Please join my team as I try to raise $5,000 for the Carroll Center for the Blind.
Thank you so much,
Ed Marsha and Muddy
