Day 10 - Our final day in Cleveland…
Today was a short day for the students but a very productive day for us. We saw 119 kids and 80 of them needed glasses. After the school was finished, it was time to make the glasses and hurry to the rest of the schools for dispensing. After the majority of schools were dispensed, it was time to tie up all the loose ends. We have to make sure every pair of glasses are made and accounted for and prepared for delivery to the schools. We will still have 5 schools left for dispense so we will have a local team going to the schools next week. We have to clean and pack up all the pre-testing and doctor equipment and load them into the pods for pickup and clean and pack all the manufacturing equipment and load it onto EyeVan.
Everyone is working together as a team and we will be cleaned up and ready to exit the building in no time!
The clinic is sadly coming to a close. Some of our team will be departing shortly because they have earlier flights and others will stay to help clean until we are finished, so it will be time for us to say our final goodbyes...
