Good Day Ohio Members,


The Ohio Affiliate President, Richard Payne is hosting a conference call tonight at 7:00 PM. He has the best interest of all his Ohio members and want to ensure that we stay connected and have the necessary information on COVID-19.


In addition, community resources are important if you or someone you know might need further assistance, due to the loss of their employment, or a need for food assistance, shelter locations or having an emotional crisis. Moreover, if you or an Ohio member is feeling anxious, depressed, isolated, disconnected or exhibiting other emotions, join into the call. Although, no one on the Ohio Executive Board is a physician or licensed therapist, we are a family; and family takes care of family. Hence, we walk together during the good and difficult times !


The meeting is for you, but you may be caring for children, grandchildren or another family member where a NFB member on the call might have an answer or solution to your dilemma. Keep in mind, Ohio members have loved ones in nursing homes, therapy centers and out of town that we are unable to visit right now. The “staying at home mandate” has limited social activities as well. Therefore, unpredictability can be awfully hard to comprehend.  


Ohio members, the President also wants to encourage us all to remain patient as we go through this life changing event. There are a lot of information and unanswered questions on COVID-19. So, we need each other during this trying time. Please share this announcement with Ohio members that you know near or across the state about the call. Also, would you be so kind to use the buddy system to help those who are unable to dial the numbers? Again, we are a family and we take care of one another.


The call is tonight at 7:00 PM

Code: 240281423

Time: 7:00 PM

If you have any questions, let me know!


Thank you for your service!

You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
