#1 Currently running, this is the first year that we have partnered with Schwan's Foods to raise funds. Read the below short write-up to join in on this fund raiser!

We are the Friends of the Nebraska Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired and are raising funds to be used to sponsor educational enrichment opportunities for blind youth, expanding their world with the knowledge that blindness is not what defines them, and it need not prevent them from finding joy and success in all that they undertake. During sponsored academies and camps, children participate in sports, read Braille, perform science experiments, make music together and learn success, independence and adventure from competent blind adults. You can help to build a brighter future for young people across Nebraska while enjoying the convenience and tastiness of Schwan’s.
