      April 23rd – April 29th  - We Celebrate National Volunteer Week and Money Smart Week

      National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate our volunteers.  We appreciate the precious time given by our volunteers.  For their invaluable contributions to the services and programs of the Iowa Department for the Blind, we will honor our volunteers at the Elizabeth Perowsky Volunteer Luncheon on Wednesday, March 26th. 

      The theme of this year’s luncheon is “Volunteers:  Sing Their Praises”.  To everyone who volunteers their time and talents, we thank you.


      Also this week is Money Smart Week. A public awareness campaign to promote financial education across all age groups. Launched in 2002 by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, the program is now active in more than 45 states through national partnerships with the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Cooperative Extension and the American Library Association. 

      Ask the library about their financial literacy resources.
