VISION MATES

Shopping. Reading. Taking a stroll down the street. Things you do every day without a second thought. But, for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians who are blind or partially sighted, these things can be challenging. A helping hand can make a world of difference. Become a CNIB Vision Mate and experience the rewards of giving back. With only two hours a week, you can help someone in your community with these everyday tasks. Learn how at cnib.ca/volunteer or by calling your local CNIB office at 1-800-563-2642.
