They say you can’t build a house without a solid foundation. I know its cliché, but it’s
true. The Olmsted Center for Sight (OCS) is in the business of building foundations.
When you’re blind, living in a world that so often feels like it’s not designed for you; you need a stronger foundation than most. I am able to thrive in life because of the services OCS has provided to me since I was a little girl in their early education program. I have been able to graduate from college,find an excellent job with the IRS, and foster meaningful relationships with people around me. OCS is building foundations for countless people, every single day. Not just children, but people of all ages. Their services help individuals experience so many “firsts in their lives”. Someone’s
first time reading a braille book, first time using a computer optimized with adaptable software, their first job, and many more.
The support raised through OCS’s Annual Appeal helps make all this possible. With your support, OCS can continue to build foundations, and provide these life changing experiences to thousands of individuals who are blind or visually impaired living in WNY. When you support OCS you are supporting future lawyers, bloggers, Ph.D.’s, entertainers, and business leaders who will go out and change the world.
Sincerely, Annie Brady – OCS Client & Ambassador
