Hello, I am forwarding this message for your consideration.
the Cleveland chapter does a community engagement project about every 3 months with The Greater Cleveland Food Bank and it is very rewarding. We are also collecting cell phones for the Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center, they will be refurbished and redistributed. Please read below and consider getting involved. Blessings, Cheryl Fields

Subject: [Nfbnet-members-list] Introducing the 75 days of Service Campaign
Are you interested in making a positive difference in your community
while working to challenge common misconceptions about the blind? To
celebrate the 75th year of the National Federation of the Blind(NFB), the
National Federation of the Blind Community Service Division, the NFB
Community Service Division of California and the NFB Community Service Division of the District of Columbia
are proud to present the 75 Days of Service project, which will take place from
April 12 to June 26. The purpose of this project is to encourage and
support Federationists in bringing about positive change to their
communities. Also,to show that blind people need not be recipients
of charity from society , that we can give of ourselves to society and
in so doing strengthen our belief in the philosophy of the Federation.
You can take part in this project individually or with your chapter
or family, by engaging in a community service project, such as
volunteering for a nonprofit organization, local church or school, or
helping those in need in your neighborhood. Participants will be able
to share ideas and receive support during bi-weekly conference calls
every other Sunday, and will also have the opportunity to write about
their experiences on the National Community Service Division’s blog.
The first call will take place on Sunday, April 12, at 7 pm EST. The
specific dates of each call will be announced next month.

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can have the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
“”...The challenges we face will not be solved with one meeting in one night. Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time.
We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek...” -Barack Obama
