Business Services Division

Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania is proud of the fact that our Business Services division generates over 80% of the annual revenue necessary to fulfill our mission to the blind and visually impaired throughout Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin and Perry counties. Vision Resources is equally proud that our businesses provide employment and job training to individuals with disabilities, and we are able to compensate them at levels beginning at minimum wage. Together we are working to raise the quality of life for everyone in our region.

Mission Statement
The Mission of Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania is to support and promote the interests of people who are blind, visually impaired and otherwise disabled, and to provide blindness prevention services.
Vision Statement
Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania is to be the premiere resource for blindness prevention services, and to maximize opportunities for individuals who are blind and visually impaired to maintain independence.

VISION BOWL
As you begin to make plans for the coming summer season, be certain to mark your calendar for the first, hopefully annual, VISION BOWL tournament. This will be a statewide tournament to benefit Vision resources, other state regional agencies and the PAB.

Each agency will select their own tournament dates between July 1st and August 1st. VROCP will have theirs on Saturday, July 18th, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. and there will be two locations where your team can participate: ABC East or West. Teams must consist of 4 bowlers. The contribution for teams is $200 and that will include three games of bowling and shoe rental.

Here is the interesting twist, the idea is for this to be a public awareness event so for the third game bowlers will be required to wear light-weight paper glasses that have lenses that simulate various vision diseases. This “visual impairment” competition is the game that will determine our statewide team and individual top bowlers. Statewide trophies will be held by the winners each year for bragging rights.

We hope for this to be a fun event for a hot-summer-day. Vision resources will be soliciting businesses for sponsorships: $500.00, which includes the businesses team of 4. We also encourage friends, families, and social clubs to create teams and help make this a great event. More information will emerge as we draw closer, including registration details. To learn more please contact Paul Zavinsky, pzavinsky@vrocp.org, or 717-238-2531.
