Hello: The Blind Center of Nevada in Las Vegas has provided services to blind and visually impaired people living in southern Nevada since 1955. The Blind Center of Nevada has also provided job training and paid employment to visually disabled persons for more than 50 years.
According to the Helen Keller National Center, 1 out of 4 Americans over the age of 65 will experience significant or total vision loss, while 1 out of 3 will experience some loss of hearing. Of southern Nevada's approximately 160,000 senior citizens, nearly 28,000 are visually impaired or legally blind (Bureau of the Census). This population is expected to more than double by the year 2030, when the last generation of Baby Boomers reaches the age of 65. It is very important that the services offered by the Blind Center of Nevada continue. We cannot serve those in need without your help.
We are in need of donations of computers and electronic-related equipment, food donations and monetary donations. It is important you understand that your donation goes directly towards meeting the basic human services we provide, such as lunch every day and transportation for weekly grocery shopping.
The Blind Center of Nevada appreciates all contributions. For more information, please call the Blind Center of Nevada in Las Vegas at (702) 642-6000, and please visit our website listed below.
