Can you read this clearly? Imagine you couldn’t. For those with blindness, low vision, and other impairments, reading the news can be an impossible task. But you can help. Here are some ways you can make a big difference.


Volunteers read from our local newspapers Monday through Friday. Typically, this requires one to two hours of time. Readers usually work in pairs. The frequency of reading commitments can be adapted to your availability.
