Vision-impaired veterans received holiday cheer as a result of a two-year partnership between two community service programs. The United Way of Porter County AmeriCorps program teamed with the Blind Social Center in Gary, Indiana, to create holiday cards for veterans. “This is a great way for individuals to give back to their community through service,” said Kim Olesker, president and CEO of United Way of Porter County. AmeriCorps members donated their time and excitedly created festive cards that were later imprinted with Braille by the Blind Social Center volunteers.
