Jewish Guild for Blind offers free brochure


NEW YORK—As part of its National Vision Awareness Campaign, The Guild is offering a new version of its brochure for people who want to learn more about the correct way to interact with a blind or visually-impaired person. Entitled “Assisting People with Vision Loss,” it is designed to help sighted people understand how best to assist family, friends, colleagues or strangers who may be blind or visually-impaired, on the street, at work and in the home.

The 12-page, two-color brochure is well illustrated, using computer-generated artwork, and fits easily into a pocket or a No. 10 envelope. Its layout follows an easy-to-understand format of do’s and don’ts, with such tips as “Do introduce yourself” and “Don’t shout.”

For a free copy of this brochure, write to: Public Relations Department, The Jewish Guild for the Blind, 15 West 65th St., New York, NY 10023; or call Victoria Keller at (212) 769-6268.
