The A Team saves the world once again. No, I’m not talking about Mr. T, though maybe someone on their team could grow a Mohawk. The A Team is a well-seasoned Team Works team who have been volunteering together for at least six rounds of Team Works. That’s a total of 24 Saturdays they’ve spent together and they still continue to learn and spread the word about great organizations in our community. Recently the team went to the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library and came back with glowing comments about the organization.
For someone who is blind or unable to read standard print media, it means a life without being able to read books, magazines, newspapers, even the computer screen. But the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library makes it possible for people of Washington State to access all of this material by serving the entire state and processing 10,000 talking books a week!
They don’t stop there! They also have a radio show on which they read the entire newspaper on air every day. According to Laura, the Team Captain of The A Team, “they are an exemplary social service organization” and while they were volunteering there, “[they] felt like the work was really important.”
And a shout out to all Seattle Works volunteers: the coordinator at the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library expressed that the volunteers from Seattle Works are essentially worth about 18 full-time employees.
