If you (or your child) are legally blind you may be a great candidate for Club VIBES. An assessment of each individual and their particular circumstances will be done to determine how Club VIBES resources may benefit each particular family. When the youth and parent(s)/guardian are ready to develop their individual goals and move toward a set of established objectives they will be encouraged to become a member.
Club VIBES is always on the lookout for new volunteers! If you have an interest in vision rehabilitation education, you may be a great addition to the Club. The Outdoor Recreation Program needs volunteers to provide carpools, act as sighted hiking guides, and tandem bike pilots. We also welcome individuals who have a talent for marketing and social media, thus allowing us to spread the Mission and goals of our Club. If you have other ideas on how you may assist, do not hesitate to contact us!
In December 2012, Club VIBES celebrated the years accomplishments with a Volunteer Party. At this years party, Club VIBES was honored to present the Volunteer of the Year Award to Jim McFarland. Jim has worked effortlessly to assist our Club VIBES Board in Securing the IRS designation of an official 501(c)(3). This is not a small undertaking and the Board of Directors wish to grant our sincere thanks to Jim for his time and talents.
Jim volunteers with many other agencies in our community. One of those agencies dear to his heart is the Lion's Club. Jim and his wife Sharron have been members of the West Knox Lions Club for many years and they continue to give their service to the community through numerous projects that the Lion's Club offers.
We say, "Hats off to Jim" not only for his work with Club VIBES but also for the many other not for profits he serves. He is a true community leader.
Of course, monetary donations are always appreciated! We would also welcome any cycling or outdoor accessories such as water bottles, camelbacks, bike shoes, pedals, saddles, or helmets. Donations of technology such as gently used computers or netbooks with XP Operating systems or more current can be used to teach much needed communication and typing skills to our members. We add the needed adaptive screen enlargement or screen reading technology to make these accessible.
