Training Kitchen for the Blind

$1,915 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 12 people in 4 months
Center of Vision Enhancement (COVE) is a support and training center for persons who are blind or have low vision.  We train clients to be independent and self-sufficient.  Due to the sale of our current location, we are in the process of moving.  At the new site, we do not have a kitchen to teach the modules of independent living skills related to food preparation and cooking.  COVE needs to establish a kitchen in order to teach skills, such as kitchen safety, organization, food preparation, stovetop cooking, and baking to name a few.  

As with all centers for the blind, we are a non-profit and receive no direct funding.  We rely on the generosity of donors to serve our clients.   The estimated cost for creating a kitchen in one of the existing rooms of the new building is $5,000.  COVE welcomes any size donation to create the "Kitchen for COVE".

We haven't reached our goal yet for a complete training kitchen, but today the electrical was installed. This means our range can now be used to teach stove top and oven cooking skills!

If you haven't donated yet, it is not too late. Thanks to those who have already shown their support!!!
