We Breathe Words Into Your Life ... Since 1983!
The Triangle Radio Reading Service connects people who are blind and print impaired to each other, their communities, and families by delivering news, information, and entertainment using the latest audio technology.
Listen to one of our newest podcasts, LION Magazine, each month here on our website. Articles include feature stories and photo essays on Lions' projects and initiatives. The magazine provides the latest news related to Lions and generally promotes pride of affiliation with the wide world of Lions.

Ways You Can Help
TRRS depends entirely on financial contributions from civic organizations, corporations, grants and individuals like you. As TRRS is not available through an ordinary FM radio, listeners are loaned specially tuned receivers that cost TRRS about $25 each. They are provided free of charge to those living in the broadcast area, although some listeners contribute as they are financially able. You can help us in the following ways:
|Tell TRRS about friends and family members who could benefit from the Reading Service. Also tell your friends, neighbors and associates about this worthwhile program and encourage them to support it with their time, talent, and donations.||Become a TRRS volunteer. Assist with on-air reading, engineering, scheduling, fund raising, public outreach, and other projects. Training programs are offered to all volunteers. Read about our volunteers.||Become a TRRS supporter.
A $100 donation will purchase 4 special TRRS receivers for 4 listeners.

daily operations. See Ways to Donate,
