GaRRS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, limited access radio station founded in 1980 to serve Georgia’s blind, visually impaired and print disabled communities by broadcasting the printed word. Volunteers broadcast the reading of local and national newspapers, a wide variety of magazines and periodicals, and the best in recent fiction and non-fiction, read cover-to-cover and unabridged.
 

 
GaRRS is staffed predominantly by volunteers and professionals who offer 24-hour programming seven days a week to a listening audience that serves over 16,000 blind, visually and print-disabled Georgians of all ages.
 


Contributions
In Georgia, more than 800,000 cases of blindness and visual impairment have been reported. As these numbers are increasing, the need to have access to the printed word has never been greater. With community support, GaRRS will be able to continue this unique broadcast service, lifting the barriers of isolation from the lives of Georgia’s blind and print-disabled citizens. GaRRS is supported by government grants, universities, foundations, corporate gifts and by general donations from listeners and individuals like you. If you wish to join our efforts in keeping Georgia’s blind, visually impaired and print disabled communities connected to the world of print, please consider a contribution. All contributions are tax deductible. Just click on the following link: http://www.garrs.net/donate.htm or give us a call at 404-685-2820 or 1-800-672-6173.

Thank you.
