We thank all of our donors for supporting us in our mission to enhance the lives of the blind and visually impaired.  We could not do this work without you!  In the words of Helen Keller Alone we can do so little; TOGETHER we can do so much.


The Vision Resource Center (“VRC”) provides opportunities and resources to improve the quality of life of adults and children who are blind or visually impaired (VI).  VRC has been consistently helping blind individuals in Cumberland County, North Carolina since 1936.



This list includes donors who supported the VRC mission between July 1, 2022- Present. We do our best to avoid errors, please contact Terri Thomas at if there is an error in your listing. Thank you to all the donors who wish to remain Anonymous.
