We welcome all with visual impairment
Serving Tucson and Pima County
Welcome to the Tucson Society of the Blind, TSB, website. TSB provides social and educational programs for those individuals with low or no vision. TSB provides valuable resources on coping with blindness and vision impairment. It is wonderful to meet other visually impaired seniors who can act as mentors and provide emotional support.
Join Us at our Weekly Meetings
Tuesday mornings from 9:30am- 1:00pm.
Christ Presbyterian Church
6565 E. Broadway Blvd., Tucson, AZ
Includes topic as noted on our calendar, followed by games.
You will notice there is no calendar at this time. This is because guest speakers are not confirming until the last minute.
We do not know when we will be back at the church. This depends on the corona virus and when the church gives us a green light to begin again. When we do meet again at the church we will have a pizza party so TSB will supply masks. Stay tuned for my email. You can also call me or Tom for the latest news of what is happening at TSB. There will always be a program with a guest speaker every Tuesday, whether on the phone or in the church.
Relief and Economic Security Act, CARES Act, will permit taxpayers to deduct from their federal income taxes up to $300 in cash contributions to charitable organizations, whether they itemize tax deductions or not. Subsequently, people can make a donation for essentially no cost. The CARES Act is a huge help to nonprofits because it gives people the opportunity to direct funds to charities of their choice. We hope you will financially support the work of Tucson Society of the Blind via the tax credit so that TSB can achieve its mission of providing social, recreational, and educational programs to individuals with vision loss. TSB also provides information and resources to the Tucson community. Mail checks payable to TSB, P.O.
