"This is just one small way that NVG members can give to those in need for all the blessings we receive in life", NVG member Colleen M. Taijeron
of Mangilao said. Taijeron, a 10-year veteran volunteer at the Kusinan Kamalin Karidat, initiated and will continue to direct New Vision Guam’s participation in the feeding of the island’s homeless.
"As a group there is much we do need", Taijeron said, "but overall we have a lot that we can give." Friends and family of NVG members were also on
hand to join in the food preparation, plating, serving and cleanup.
“We feel that as a community we should all come together for those most in need and doing this is just one part of reaching out and helping our community,” said family member Jesse A. Fejeran. “I’m here for my wife, Tracy Fejeran, and I want to let her know that she has my full support in whatever endeavor she sets out to do. I am always with her, and right beside her,” the 43-year-old Sinajana resident said. The Americans with Disabilities Act is an important civil rights legislation that was designed to remove barriers for persons with disabilities in all areas of life. When asked what he
thought his wife was capable of, Fejeran replied, “Anything she wants to do. Anything that she sets her mind to.”
NVG’s mission is to change the way people understand blindness through programs of support, education and advocacy by and for people who are
blind. For more information call 456-3793 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
