Join the Club
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!
2014 Volunteers of the Year: Kathy Holloway and Emily Stroud
2013 Volunteers of the Year: James East, David Thomas, Missy Kane BeMiller and Melissa Preston
2012 Volunteer of the Year: Jim McFarland
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.
There is a new way to help Club VIBES just by shopping on Amazon! AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization (Club VIBES!!) every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages. Sorry, recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.
You use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same. On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. AmazonSmile will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make will result in a donation. Donations are made by the AmazonSmile Foundation and are not tax deductible by you.
