Thank you to the FOP’s enormous heart and the generosity of the community. They donated a 3 D printer,and materials,  a recumbent seating system, and assistive technology devices.  The FOP Lodge 56 members have been a long time supporter of our school at VPF and truly have made a difference in the lives of our students by providing us resources to enhance the educational opportunities of our students.
