JOHNSONBURG – The Life and Independence for Today organization hosted its Disability and Aging Expo, which featured 47 local and regional vendors, Thursday at the fire hall in Johnsonburg.
LIFT is a non-profit organization that aims to provide free information and services to people with disabilities, regardless of their age or disability, according to Hope Weichman, LIFT's deputy director.
The expo included 47 vendors, most of which were local vendors, but some came from as far away as King of Prussia and Philadelphia. The event included five spotlight vendors, each of which made a presentation about specific products or services that their organization offers. The spotlight vendors were The Community Nurses Inc., Interim Health Care, Laurel Medical Supplies, The Penn Highlands Healthcare Behavioral Health Center, and SMP Home Medical.
