Current Campaign: 30 Additional Reading Machines for the Visually Impaired
Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of severe, permanent vision loss in people over age 60. It is estimated that nearly 300 people in Plymouth alone suffer from some level of AMD.
The Plymouth Lions Club has been loaning Reading Machines, FREE OF CHARGE, to community members who experience some level of macular degeneration, and in some cases, total blindness. We provide delivery, training, and maintenance of the equipment.
We are looking to expand our 25+ year program by purchasing 30 new machines to expand our outreach in the community.
Reading Machines go beyond just assisting with reading – they really allow people to maintain an independent lifestyle. The machines help people read their mail, books & magazines, recipes & food labels, medicine instructions, write checks, view photos, even help thread a needle.
We encourage individual donors as well as corporate donors, and thank you for supporting this life-changing campaign.
