>Fellow Federationests,
>  The Community Service Division is a new and 
> proud division of the National Federation of the Blind.
>  As you know, the mission of the Community 
> Service Division is to secure   equality of 
> opportunity for the blind  through community service and advocacy.
>  We believe that by serving amongst and along 
> side our sighted peers we can model positive 
> blindness philosophy  and shatter misconceptions.
>  we believe that by giving back and getting 
> involved, we can show how the blind  can liv 
> the life we want.  We can show what we’ve 
> always believed; that blindness is not, has not 
> and will not be 
> the   characteristic  that  defines us or our 
> future, that  through volunteering our  time 
> and serving in the communities  in which we 
> live, we slowly but  surely raise  expectations of blindness.
>  The Division has established four separate and 
> unique committees, filled by Passionate, 
> dedicated and driven leaders.  Each committee 
> has a few possible projects  an individual may 
> serve on.  We encourage you to take a look at 
> the committee and the projects associated with
