Fellow Federationists,

The Community Service Division is excited to 
start 2017 off strong with our federation family!
  We are excited to let you know what  we’ve 
been up to over the past few months, keep you up 
to speed on what we are  doing now, and give you 
a quick look at some of what is in the works  in the near future.
  Take a look back at the Community Service 
Division’s 2016 with our annual year in review 

Join us for an exciting and interactive 
conference call to start off the new year!
On February 19th at 7:00 PM eastern, The Service 
Engagement Committee of the NFB Community Service 
Division will be hosting a call for those who 
would like to involve themselves, or  their local 
chapter in a community service project or 
two,  but could use some tips on how to overcome 
doubts they might be having about actually giving 
back. Dial (712)432-0140 and enter access code 808277.

Did you know we have a blog 
where we host, and are always looking for 
community service stories and experiences that 
communicate that through giving back we as 
members of the federation live the lives we 
want?  If you have any, please send them to us at 
<mailto:blog at nfbcommunityservice.org>blog at nfbcommunityservice.org. 
Looking for some topics to get you 
started?  check out these three from our blog 
editor Chris Parsons, pick the topic(s) you like 
and submit it for posting!     January: National 
Mentoring Month (mentoring experiences or tribute 
to your 
mentors).                            February: 
National Green Week/Great American Cleanup 
(spring, time to be outside; green- or 
nature-themed experiences;

Finally, Please take a few moments to tell us how 
we’re doing by filling out this survey:

The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the
characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the
expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles
between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want;
blindness is not what holds you back.
  “We need your service, right now, at this 
moment - our moment - in history. I'm not going 
to tell you what your role should be; that's for 
you to discover. But I am going to ask you to 
play your part; ask you to stand up; ask you to 
put your foot firmly into the current of history” — Barrack Obama
