Looking for something to do with your old, but still operable Apple product?

Wanda Scroggins of the Extreme Experience Retreat said Monday that there was a need for Apple products for participants of the EER.

The event is held each September at Blue Lake Camp and is for those who are blind or have low vision.

Through Apple, Scroggins said there are accessibility options for blind and low vision users.

“We’re looking for iPod touches and iPad minis – things like that,” she said. “I know Covington County has got to have some used Apple products.”

This year’s retreat is scheduled for Sept. 23 through Sept. 28.

Scroggins said they are also looking for participants in the retreat.

Cost is $250 per person and includes meals and lodging for those days.

Additionally, Scroggins said she is looking for businesses and individuals to be sponsors for the event.

“We are asking for your support in this service project as many low vision/blind persons are on limited incomes and do not have discretionary funds to cover the costs,” she said.

The event will feature fun, including a talent contest, and many different classes to help improve quality of life.
