Service Saturday at the National Center for the Blind

Two volunteers from AmeriCorps NCCC prepare an educational mailing.

Service Saturday is an annual outreach event held at the National Center for the Blind in which we ask for volunteers in and around Baltimore to join us in special projects to help the organization.  Our goal is not only to tap into the energy of these volunteers but to help them come to know who we are, learn what we do, and experience firsthand what it is like for the blind and the sighted to work together to accomplish some of the physical tasks required to carry out our programs and in maintaining the structure that houses them.
