Summer is here, and with those long, hot days comes the warm-weather institution of the family road trip. Be your children in car seats or high school, an annual dog pile into the minivan can often signal the beginning of summer vacation. This year, avoid a family sing-along to the Frozen soundtrack* by checking out an all-ages-friendly audiobook that will keep everyone entertained.
This Thursday and Friday, September 27 and 28, Volunteers For the Blind (VFB) is having a book and bake sale at its 1101 Caroline Street offices from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Everyone is cordially invited to browse our entire audio cassette book collection, enjoy home-baked items, meet VFB’s staff and learn more about our organization.
VFB is a local, non-profit, tax-exempt, 501 (c) 3 organization. It provides volunteer shopping assistants and readers primarily for Fredericksburg residents who are blind. VFB also offers training, especially for high school and college students, to work appropriately with volunteers. In addition, VFB has an unpaid internship program either for people who are blind and want to gain work experience before entering the competitive employment market or for those who wish to return to it after losing their sight.
