  • Donating

  • Spreading the word.

What is a white cane and why is it important?

"My white cane is a trusty companion. It enables me to be independent and have the freedom to go where I want to. It is more than just a stick to alert people that I am coming through, it’s a part of me like an extension of my hand. It provides me with information about how the ground level changes, curbs, holes, trip hazards, stairs, barriers and obstacles that are in my way.” - Alicia Howerton, Community Relations Specialist at CSC
