Re-opening our facility to bring independence to our clients
As Thanksgiving nears, I'm incredibly grateful for all the ways you've helped ACBVI's clients - especially in this year.
Clients like Nancy, a 60-year old woman who experienced a rapid decline in her vision. She worried she might have to give up living on her own.
But thanks to you, we were able to train Nancy to use a white cane, a walker, and GPS technology that helps her guage her surroundings. Nancy soon felt more confident and ready to live a more satisfying life.
Right now, thousands of Arizonans are counting on us to re-open our facility. We need more PPE, cleaning supplies, signage and Plexiglass to re-open our building to clients in the safest way possible.
That's why we're trying to raise $5,000 for Giving Tuesday -- it's a global day of unity and giving on December 1. Your generous support will help Arizonans with vision loss stay safe and move their lives forward.
How you can help -- DONATE! Start a Facebook fundraiser for your connections or spread the word of our need throughout your individual networks on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Whatever way you can to support the blind and visually impaired of Arizona get beck to the business of creating independence for 2021 and beyond.
