New Funders to LightHouse for the Blind
Bud Davis Construction
Delong Sweet Family Foundation
Genentech – A Member of the Roche Group
George Lucas Family Foundation
Thank you to Roche/Genentech for a grant to support our Changing Vision Changing Life Immersion Retreat at Enchanted Hills and all of our specialized training in accessible technology, cooking and other blindness skills. Thank you to the George Lucas Foundation for sponsoring Superfest International Disability Film Festival. Many thanks to the Delong-Sweet Family Foundation which is funding the replacement and repair of the septic system at Enchanted Hills and has made possible the installation of 37 brand new low-flow toilets at camp. We were wasting so much water with our antiquated fixtures; these new toilets will cut water use during the peak summer season in half! Finally, a big thank you to Bud Davis Construction who provided pro bono installation of low-flow toilets and on-demand water heaters at camp.
