Mayor Nancy Vaughan, along with Dr. Jane Fernandes, president of Guilford College, will open the event to welcome volunteers and shoppers.
This event emphasizes the importance of inclusion, empathy, acceptance, and compassion while allowing volunteers to gain valuable insight from persons with disabilities. Volunteers have a chance to meet a peer, become aware of obstructions, both physical and attitudinal, that people with disabilities face and overcome daily.
