It’s time to help support Sierra Services for the Blind

On Jan 29, the article in The Union covering Sierra Services for the Blind and their immediate future prompts me to contribute a few words. I am a former employee of SSB and understand fully the needs of their clients. There are few things worse for people, particularly senior citizens, than losing part or all of their eyesight.

Sierra Services has provided the clients with much needed assistance to cope with their loss. The staff and board have worked very closely during the last few weeks to keep the doors open. I urge individuals and businesses to open your wallets generously to assist them during these trying times.
