It is our tradition to celebrate Thanksgiving as a Colorado Center for the Blind family on the Thursday before Thanksgiving, and so we did yesterday. Students started preparing the meal in October baking and freezing yeast rolls, and finished up all the cooking part on Wednesday.… Read the rest “Happy Thanksgiving 2022!”
Colorado Gives Day 2019 is December 10, and it’s the tenth year of this highly successful program to encourage online giving to Colorado nonprofits like the Colorado Center for the Blind. And were proud that we’ve been a part of Colorado Gives Day from the very first!
Sure, we’ll gratefully accept donations any day, any time, but Colorado Gives Day on December 10 gives all of us some distinct advantages. Let’s mention, um, 10 of them!
- This is the giving season, and Colorado Gives Day comes at the time of year many of us are already thinking about giving.
The date of our annual FAST Thanksgiving activity has been changed from earlier dates you may have seen.
- Blind students of all ages, families and teachers
- Colorado Center for the Blind, 2233 W. Shepperd Ave. Littleton CO, 80120

November’s FAST Program is all about the meal we eat, the games we play, and most importantly, the people we share this time with. This year, on November 23, we will hold our own Thanksgiving get together, FAST style that is.
Before learning to carve a turkey, a blind person can greatly benefit from learning the bird by touch – how things are connected and how they will come apart.

After that are some shots of all the food we ate! We have a lot to be thankful for!
We were more than ready by noon last Thursday! we’d been waiting for this meal for two weeks, smelling the roasting turkeys and the pies and so much more! Of course, all of our students had a part in preparing it, so they’d been right in the kitchen smelling what we were at last all going to be very, very thankful for!
It’s an annual event. A week before Thanksgiving we hold our own Thanksgiving gathering at the Center prior to everyone’s dispersal to families and friends across the country. We start off after morning classes with an hour or so of potluck appetizers furnished by staff and maybe a game or two.… Read the rest “Thankful for Each Other: Our 2016 #Thanksgiving Together”
