Scotty left early in the morning to go to Hancock Lumber in Maine to pick up donated supplies! The trunk of the Subaru came back filled with giant boxes of screws, wheels, hinges, cotter pins and a bucket of wood sealant. Now the big challenge will be figuring out how to pack everything needed for the trip while staying within the 'checked bag' limits!
Another goal for the day was to start the instruction manual for the pediatric standers. The engineers worked on this, trying to make it as detailed and specific as possible so that anyone could follow the steps easily. Emily worked on the press release, finding news outlets and organizations to reach out to about running a story on SWM’s work and cause. This is a great opportunity for local high school students interested in seeing the world and having a positive impact since we will have similar trips in the future!
The team as a whole is getting really excited about starting the trip, and seeing the standing frames in action like with this little guy!
