It is with sad hearts that we prepare ourselves to say farewell to our founding mentor and Anchor Center teacher, JC Greeley, this June when she strolls down retirement lane. For over 30 years, JC has guided and taught hundreds of blind and visually impaired children to "see life differently". Because of visionaries like JC and our Delta Gamma founders, an immeasurable difference has been made in the lives of thousands of blind children and their families.

The Judith Greeley Fund recognizes her dedication, passion and legacy of outstanding contributions to Anchor Center for Blind Children for the past 3 decades. The honorary fund will be designated to our literacy program and staff development. Our goal is to raise $32,000 -- $1,000 for each year JC has been here. Your gift will ensure that programs for visually impaired children remain forever anchored to the community and future generations.
