Only 25 days until Colorado Gives Day!
FAST November: Kicking off the Holiday Season with CCB!November 8, 2019 at 9:09 am
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
- Saturday, November 23, 2019 from 10:00AM – 2:00PM
If we are expected to eat the meal, we should be expected to help cook it as well.
It’s becoming a bit of a tradition around here. 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. Join us for an afternoon full of cooking, eating, sharing each other’s company, and games! We promise to keep the competition to a minimum during dinnertime.
For many of our students this will be the first time they’ve been expected to help prepare such a meal; this is the type of teaching/learning we love to implement at the Colorado Center for the Blind. We will have plenty of volunteers to work with students as well as other participants. Although our focus is working with students, we love working with parents, siblings, and teachers to encourage them to have expectations that their blind child/sibling/student actively participate in all aspects of life.
- Prepare/bake chicken and ham
- Make mashed potatoes, gravy, creamed corn, stuffing, dinner rolls, and pie
- Play games, such as Pin the Feather on the Turkey, Pumpkin Roll, and Thankful Alphabet Game
Deadline to RSVP is Wednesday, November 20th.

Grounded in the National Federation of the Blind’s positive philosophy of blindness, the Colorado Center for the Blind provides innovative teaching techniques, daily challenges and self-confidence that are the building blocks of independence, opportunity and success. Day after day, year after year, blind students leave the Colorado Center for the Blind’s training program as living examples of the NFB’s motto: “With effective training and opportunity, blind people can compete on terms of equality with their sighted peers.”
