Voluntary Services for the Blind

I was talking to one of my senior friends yesterday. She is a shut-in. She told me that she uses Gallivant in Darien and the Red Cross to drive her places. She also uses Voluntary Services for the Blind. She said they do all sorts of things for people and highly recommends them.

Here is a link to their site:
