The following are ways you can help from your church or your home!
LBW produces approximately 150,000 volumes a year. Braille, Specialized Large Print, and Audio publications are available free of charge through the dedication of thousands of volunteers in over 115 Ministry Production Centers throughout the United States.
Join a crew of dedicated and passionate volunteers who assemble and ship out Braille materials. These volunteers emboss each page to create the Braille dots and then collate the pages into each individual volume. Typically groups require 8-12 volunteers working for 2-4 hours per session.
Our volunteers print, collate, and assemble our Specialized Large Print Bibles into the volumes or pamphlets which are sent out worldwide. These groups require 5-10 volunteers working for 2-4 hours per session.
Help produce Large Print Bibles for prisoners and other recipients. Help print, collate, and bind the materials before shipping them out directly to recipients. These groups typically require 3-6 volunteers working for 2-4 hours per session.
Work with individuals who are Blind or Visually Impaired at our Ministry Outreach Centers. Join them for fellowship, Bible studies, hot meals, or other field trips and activities. Typically volunteers are needed once per month for four hours.
Help edit and prepare narrated files for distribution to audio listeners. Please contact Anjanette if you are interested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
