Triangle Radio Reading Service
October 27, 2010
The TRRS is the eyes for the blind in North Carolina. I have been a volunteer for appx. 3 years and am often dismayed by the lack of financial support given to TRRS. I realize that time are difficult for many people but time are more difficult for the Blind and visually impaired citizens of the Triangle. The TRRS is the only cogent service to meet the needs of these people,without fees and in the venue of the computer age as well. I have been told that the web cast are listened to by many who have family members that access the webcast for them. The number who have diseases that prevent holding a book or paper stady enough to read,these people are often overlooked and ar in need of the TRRS as well.
