ATG Consultant Aids Visually Impaired
A rshan Munif started working at ATG in the Overland Park office as a consultant two weeks ago. In that short amount of time, he has already made an impact and proven his alignment with ATG’s Core Values.
Last weekend, Arshan volunteered at The Audio-Reader Network, a reading and information service for blind, visually impaired, and print disabled individuals in Kansas and western Missouri.
They read daily newspapers, magazines, and best-selling books on the air and on the internet, 24 hours a day, and offer automated newspaper readings by telephone. Services are offered free of charge to anyone in their listening area who is unable to read normal printed material.
Arshan volunteered by reading and recording the last five articles in the March issue of Reader’s Digest. Many volunteers read the same magazine or book, so they pick up where the last person ended their recording. He spent over two hours total recording and editing his piece that will be shared on air and online.
Arshan had a great experience and plans to volunteer again in the future.
“I enjoyed volunteering here because the staff at the Audio-Reader Network are an amazing group of people. They are selfless, caring, and giving their best to keep this place running for 365 days without any disruption,” Arshan said.
ATG is excited to have a caring individual like Arshan on the team and can’t wait to see what other ways he will make an impact at ATG and in the community.
It’s less of an organization and more like a family. A family of over 400 volunteers and staff who try to help people with disabilities throughout the year.
