Good Works Wednesday

A newsletter celebrating ASB progress, programs and people

At Associated Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired, we work every day to help individuals build skills and gain access to the information, experiences and resources they need to live the lives they wish to lead. We are an agency for anyone, anywhere on the vision loss continuum and offer education, training, community-based enrichment opportunities and referrals to help them achieve their individual goals.

TODAY: Comcast Internet Essentials Partnership Program Q&A Session

ASB is hosting a Q&A session on its Comcast Internet Essentials Partnership Program, which offers free internet access for individuals who are living with vision loss. Qualifying participants are currently able to sign up for the program on a rolling basis and receive free internet for six months. They will also receive one hour of accessible technology consultation with an ASB instructor.

Interested individuals are invited to attend a FREE informational Q&A Zoom session today at 10:30 a.m. If any of the participants you work with cannot make today’s session, ASB will host another informational Q&A session on Wednesday, September 8 at 10:30 a.m.
