• Shopping aide is needed for blind woman
     | November 10,2012

    MONTPELIER — Attention, volunteer shoppers. The Vermont Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired is looking for someone to be a shopper/assistant for a blind woman who lives in the Montpelier area.

    The volunteer would pick her up and take her on a once-a-month shopping trip that may include more than one store to purchase necessary items. The woman would need help identifying, finding and purchasing items.

    The association says volunteer shoppers are the key to keeping Vermonters with vision loss living independently, by being able to continue to meet their own basic needs.

    Volunteers receive mileage reimbursement for the use of their cars. To offer help or get more information, call Cathie toll-free at 877-350-8838.

    The nonprofit association offers an array of services to visually impaired Vermonters, of whom there are about 10,500.
