Celebrating 99 years of service!
The Mission of Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania is to facilitate independence, enrich the quality of life, and empower individuals who are visually impaired or otherwise disabled through prevention, employment and educational awareness programs.
Vision Resources provides a Speakers Bureau to increase community awareness about the services we provide to both the sighted and blind communities. The Speakers Bureau is offered as a free public service.
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM VISION RESOURCES
Our Vision Resources of Central Pennsylvania has undertaken preventive steps and has reduced a portion of its services due to the coronavirus emergency. The agency will be closed Monday March 23-27, with some employees working remotely from home. Should you need to reach someone at Vision Resources please visit www.vrocp.org, staff, and there you will find the different departments and email addresses for VROCP personnel. Someone will respond as soon as possible.
Regrettably, the board of directors and management has had to make the tough decisions this week. Once was to cancel the organization’s annual fundraising event, Visions of Monte Carlo. This would have been the 22nd year for this celebration and many of us will miss the fun when April 24th gets here. We know how many of our supporters look forward to Visions of Monte Carlo each year and we hope you won’t be too disappointed. Please mark your calendar for the 22nd Visions of Monte Carlo on Friday, April 23, 2021. Thank you to our supporters who were willing to sponsor, donate, volunteer and attend our event.
Ticket sales for the Monte Carlo Travel Raffle that Vision Resources is holding will continue, however, because the drawing was to take place at Visions of Monte Carlo and because of the crisis, the drawing date for the Raffle has been postponed until Tuesday, October 13, 2020. Our friends at AAA Central Penn are planning the winning trip and they have assured VROCP that they can make the winning reservations through 2021.
One last message regarding interruptions at Vision Resources. The agency’s streaming Audio Services will remain on the air and try as best as possible with limited resources to maintain its normal schedule of program. We do know that providing Penn Live news, live each week day morning, will not be possible. We hope you will continue to listen to our audio stream found at www.vrocp.org and enjoy the information and entertainment. Penn Live news will return as soon as possible.
Thank you for all you do for this organization, please stay safe and together we will look forward to better times for everyone.
