ABSTRACT
The author discusses her experience of being a volunteer for the Memphis Volunteer Service Bureau, an organization which helps blind people. During an interview, an official of the organization told her if she wanted to help in one of the weaving classes or go into a class in Braille and learn to teach it. A week after the interview, her interviewer called her and told her that a blind man is looking for someone who could read for him. She accepted it and read for the man every Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.
