American Flag Project for Area Businesses

On eight holidays a year we put up the American Flag at area businesses.  We purchase the flag, mount the bracket, put the flags up, remove the flags and store them.

Used Glasses and Hearing Aids

We have collection boxes for used glasses and hearing aids at Lakeland Eye Clinic and the Rathdrum Library. Hearing aids are cleaned and tested. Glasses are washed, calibrated and sent to developing countries for reuse.

Vision and Hearing Testing

Each year we test the vision and hearing on elementary school children and homeschooled in Athol, Garwood, Spirit Lake, Twin Lakes and Rathdrum.  We average around 2,000 children and it takes 6 days.
