Answering the Nation’s Call to Service in Response to COVID-19
National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and its nationwide network of associated nonprofit agencies manufacture and deliver thousands of critical products that are helping the nation respond to COVID-19, including personal protective equipment (PPE), hand sanitizer, cleaning products and disinfectants, first aid kits, exam gloves, and toilet paper, and more. People who are blind are proud to support their local communities and the nation at large.
People who are blind are also doing their part to keep America’s Defense Industrial Base strong by providing critical products like the helmets and uniforms soldiers wear every day as National Guard units are deployed around the country. And they are helping to maintain continuity and availability of essential services for our nation’s veterans, operating switchboards for medical centers run by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and manufacturing prescription bottles for VA hospitals and pharmacies.
