Megan Bening Memorial Fund & Technology Giveaway!

In the Spring of 2017 the Board of Directors of the National Organization of Parents of Blind Children
established a fund in memory of Megan Bening, daughter of Board Member Jean Bening and
her husband Allan Bening. Megan passed away suddenly in January 2017 from a brain hemorrhage.
Megan was an avid braille reader who loved technology. In her memory we began selling Angel Pins to
raise funds for a Technology Giveaway. This year’s Technology Giveaway for blind children and youth,
