My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Triangle Radio Reading Service, Raleigh, NC, USA
My last volunteer effort with TRRS was to do a very extensive telephone survey of all its visually impaired, blind and otherwise physically disabled keeping them from holding print material. Others may have a cognitive disability – the result of a stroke or closed head injury – and can no longer comprehend print material. These listeners are highly complimentary of this radio service that provides a connection with the sighted world. Some of the benefits sighted men, women and children take for granted were shared with me. *I love the exercise program! * I wouldn't know what Food Lion had on sale. * I'd be lost, it's a blessing to me. * I'd hate to lose it, I listen to it everyday. * It adds to the richness of my life. * It would affect your ability to do your shopping. * I'd miss it. I'm thankful it exists. * It keeps me informed. * Keeps me current - a companion for me sometimes. * It would be dull. I think it's wonderful! * I would never hear other opinions, obituaries, or grocery ads. * Life would not be as rich. * It's a bright spot in my day. * It means I can talk intelligently with my friends and I don't feel so isolated. I'm proud to be a volunteer with Triangle Radio Reading Service and encourage you to consider it and above all DONATE to keep it going for these appreciative people.
