I came to volunteer at Horizons for the Blind, after my husband who is legally blind and could no longer work as a regional sales manager for a big drug company in Chicago let him go as he could no longer drive. He told me about all the great things they were doing at Horizons, for the blind and visually impaired. They print large print and bralle menus for restaurants and hotels, and they also do statements for utilities and credit card companies and banks. The just launched a new and exciting web site Directions for me.org- it is a source for accessible packaging information. It provides information on consumer packages or labels in simple online format, it also is a quality source of complete packaging information from everything from preperation of cooking instructions to ingredient lists, and nutrition and drug fact labels. It also provides potentially life-saving allergy and drug interaction warnings. I have never volunteered for a company that I was more inopressedn with.There work is of the utmost quality.
