On Monday at 7:30 p.m., the UNC-TV program “North Carolina Now” will feature a story on the recent transformation of The Blind Center of North Carolina.

The program will feature the projects that are currently being worked on, the new computer lab and interviews with staff, volunteers and clients. It’s a great chance to see the work that is performed right here in our own backyard and to find out how you can help the cause.

Every weeknight, “North Carolina Now” examines the most pressing issues of the day, talks with its most important people, visits the most interesting places in the state and celebrates our artistic and cultural diversity. Covering a wide array of topics ranging from the environment, politics and government, to statewide education on all levels, the farming community and coastal and rural development issues, “North Carolina Now” is there, bringing you the information you need. From the mountains to the coast, the State Fair to the state line, “North Carolina Now” covers the local stories and brings them home to you.

The Blind Center of North Carolina’s mission is to provide opportunities that will enhance the lives of the blind and visually impaired people of our great state. Currently in the process of increasing its effective area of support and providing more programs, The Blind Center is eagerly seeking more assistance from the community. You can help continue the great work being done by volunteering your time or providing financial assistance to continue their operations.
