The Li of Brookline Mass. was recognized this year with the Family Volunteer Award for their years of service supporting individuals who are blind or visually impaired. The award recognizes outstanding volunteer services provided by a family. Kevin Li volunteer work currently supports two individuals. His family has been volunteering with one client since 2016, The familys volunteer work started with Kevins mother Dayu, and his brother Michael, who won the Family Volunteer Award two years ago. When Michael went off to college, Kevin continued to provide support for their client. Kevin has also been a positive role model for his peers and friends. He took the initiative to introduce Brookline High School students to join MABVI volunteer program. Kevins dedication continued after the COVID-19 break out by reaching out to see if there were any other people he could support. He is now helping a client by picking up groceries and running errands as needed.Our volunteers commitment to our community demonstrates an exceptional amount of love, hard work, and ingenuity, said Sassy Outwater-Wright, Executive Director of MABVI. As the world changes rapidly, blind and visually impaired residents of Massachusetts face unprecedented challenges to access the things we need. The volunteers availability to help support us as we negotiate these challenges is critical and profoundly powerful. I want to extend my since gratitude all they have done to support MABVI and the people we serve.Go to http://www.mabvi.org/volunteer for more information about volunteer opportunities with the MA Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
