A center for the visually impaired receives a $30,000 grant

The Visually Impaired Center Inc. has received a $30,000 grant from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation to be used for consulting costs to help the organization with fundraising and operational expenses, among other issues.

The center serves Genesee, Shiawassee and Lapeer counties and has been helping the visually impaired since 1970.

It assists more than 200 people each year with Braille instruction, computer classes, use of low vision aids and acquiring independent living skills. The VIC also has an extensive program with the Hurley Diabetes Center to help the visually impaired with diabetes.
