Games benefiting the Society are played on Sunday evenings and Tuesday days and evenings. Volunteers completely staff and run these games. Time commitment is four hours per game, at least two times per month.
Access News is a program which allows volunteers to record newspapers, magazines, and other items of interest so that blind and visually impaired clients can listen to these publications by telephone.
