After listening to Jason Miles, a branch leader from World Vision, members of the Class of 2010, friends, family, and staff members will work together to assemble kits which include: a carrying case, petroleum jelly, antibacterial soap, disposable latex gloves, washcloths, flashlight with batteries, antifungal cream, cotton balls, notebook and pens for medical notes, anti-diarrheal medicine and acetaminophen (supplies were received directly from World Vision with expiration dates on them), and finally, a handwritten note to encourage the caregiver. Once assembled, the caregiver kits will be shipped overseas by World Vision to Africa where basics like cotton balls, rubber gloves and washcloths are not readily available.
"World Vision is a humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice." World Vision will serve as the Class of 2010's philanthropy until their graduation day in June of 2010. The goal of the class is to raise enough money to purchase supplies and build 2010 kits by the day they graduate in 2010.
