Vision Resource Center: Radio Reading Club

The radio reading club has been relaunched! Come audition to volunteer to read news articles to the visually impaired over the air. You are giving back with your voice. The VRC provides training, will give you the articles to read (you may have to help us cut out the articles) and snacks.


Pedro the Penguin at American Red Cross

Meet Pedro, the penguin who teaches pre-school children about first safety and checking smoke alarms. Pedro also teaches children two ways to escape from the house during a fire and how to crawl below the smoke. It's a fun and interactive way for children to learn at the American Red Cross of Sandhills. We need volunteers to dress up as Pedro, join us in teaching children about fire safety.
