100 White Canes for Blind Children

 

Salt Lake City, Utah (December 5, 2019) – A senior from Cyprus High School in Magna is going to brighten the holidays for many families in Utah who have children who are blind or visually impaired.  Cameron Evans is 17 years old and recently completed his Eagle Scout project. For his project, Cameron collected enough donations to purchase 100 white canes for the Utah School for the Blind.  Cameron worked with Amazon gift registry and was able to purchase canes through Ambutech at a discounted price with those donated funds. Director Ryan Green of the Utah School for the Blind shared, “The school deeply appreciates this generous donation as white canes are vital for our students who are blind or visually impaired. We are proud of Cameron for achieving this goal.”  On December 5th, at 10:00 a.m. Cameron will present his donation to the school where students from the Utah School for the Blind will be on hand to accept the donation and thank him. When Cameron was younger he attended the Utah School for the Blind. Once he learned orientation and mobility, braille, and other important skills for the blind, he was able to exit USB to attend his neighborhood mainstream school.

When: Meet Cameron December 5th from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.

Where: Utah Schools for the Deaf and the Blind, 1655 East 3300 South SLC (North building with the red tower.)
