I first got involved with the Maryland Society for Sight as a volunteer. I was matched with a client with macular degeneration who needed assistance with grocery shopping. It was a wonderful experience which grew from a desire to assist someone in the community into a long term friendship. After a year of viewing first hand what this group was able to accomplish on a tight budget, I joined the Board of Directors, later serving as Chairperson. Twelve years of volunteering with the Maryland Society for Sight and I am still impressed daily with the skill, energy and compassion of the staff of this mighty little organization.
