Volunteer Appreciation

As in the past years, Vision Resources has selected the month of September to honor and show our appreciation to our many dedicated and generous volunteers.

This year however, we have decided to show our thanks with a custom thank you and small gift card to help replenish you or your gas tank. Although we will miss hosting the annual luncheon, so few of you were able to attend that this card seemed to be the best way to reach all of our nearly 100 agency volunteers.

Please join us in congratulating those selected as the
2015 Volunteers of the Year:
Margaret Bell, Marilyn Downing and Fred VonderHeiden.

Margaret has volunteered in the Production Facility for
several years. She spends at least 2 mornings per week packing pens or working to help our staff meet the latest deadline.
Marilyn has been a reading services volunteer for over 30 years. She reads the Hummelstown/Hershey Sun and records the Inspirations program every week.
Fred is also a reading services volunteer. He comes in every
Tuesday morning to read the Patriot News live on air and logged 144 hours last year alone.

Please know that each of you who so generously offer your time and talents to Vision Resources, are a necessary part of our
organization and without you we would not be able to fulfill our mission.
VR Business Services has a new website. Learn what we can do for you at
Support our organization simply by paying your energy bill.Vision Resources has partnered with Stream Energy, a retailer who will pay our organization a residual income for every energy customer we enroll on the Stream Energy service. This is an opportunity to save on your energy bill and help generate charitable income to sustain our mission. It sounds easy and it is and each month your participation will help to make possible the programs and services that raise the quality of life for blind and visually impaired individuals in our communities.
