My mom who recently passed away was an avid supporter of FFS. She held the position of Treasurer in her local chapter for many years. I fondly remember her helping organize and plan fundraising efforts in an over 55 community in Florida.In fact, we actually have some of the FFS coin collection containers she had used standing in front of local stores. I feel it is important to carry on this tradition of supporting FFS as the work they do to help people with vision issues is extremely important. At this time I can only help with monetary support, but in the future I hope to be able to volunteer and help in different ways.
