MILWAUKEE - Some volunteers are giving a landscaping face lift to a local organization that helps visually impaired people.
"Team Depot" is a group of volunteers who do community service projects across the area. Today they were at Beyond Vision on State Street, laying down new sod and doing other exterior improvements.
Beyond Vision supplies blind people with jobs. Brian Brooks is the manager of Wauwatosa's Home Depot:
"What they do is amazing, and it's certainly something that we hope this will bring some awareness to their organization as well."
Beyond Vision offers a variety of work opportunities for the blind, including a call center, assembly and packaging, and machining.
