Hello everyone:

This announcement is from Joanne Wilson. I mentioned this at Saturday's chapter meeting but here is much more detail. Please consider taking advantage of this new partnership.


Please help support the NFB by donating your small household goods and clothing. We have partnered with an organization called GreenDrop who helps the NFB collect your donations, which in turn become a source of much needed funding. We have a designated collection site right here at the National Center for your convenience. You are welcome to bring any items when you come for chapter meetings.
