It is for people who may not get the opportunity to attend a high school prom because of their disabilities.

Items include band aids, alcohol wipes, antibiotic cream, toothbrushes, toothpaste, small comb, pen, sewing kit, hotel size soap, hand wipes, etc.

Vision Screening Booth

Lion Deborah shared an idea for vision screenings in high light areas with Lion Waylon. Together they produced portal photo booth, pictured above, which allows for continual screening in areas with bright lighting. 

Recyling for Sight
