The Blind Social Center is seeking donations for the construction of our NEW location for the visually impaired community:    5195 JEFFERSON ST | GARY, IN 46408

We are requesting the assistance of TEN individuals to donate $1,000 for Phase 1 of the project.

Phase 1 Consists of :

• Clearing land of all debris • The removal of 28 trees • Removing existing old fencing • Installing a new 6 foot rod iron fencing w/roll gate entrance

Construction is currently underway.

We are at day nine of construction and have raised $4,000 within a week’s time. Our goal is to reach $10,000 to cover the expenses of Phase 1 listed above. We are also seeking in kind services from our local community partners, donors and volunteers.  All hands on Deck! The blind community needs your help!

First off, this book is written by someone who is blind. Have you ever wondered what it was like to be blind? Do you know someone who is blind? This book will explain the hardships of being blind and how you can help others who are blind. Some help was needed regarding editing as you can imagine. This book also includes journal entries written 100% by Eunice on a computer.
