Wish List

Keep in mind that CVI’s programs are always in need of supplies for the services they provide every day. This includes both vision-specific items, like magnifiers and sunglasses, but also everyday items. For example, we can always use paper products for client gatherings, art supplies for children’s activities, and cookware (pots, pans, oven mitts, etc.) for cooking classes. Thank you for keeping us in mind!
