The first enhancement that we will be making to our Makeshift Traveler is inputting some type of cover that can protect the solar panel from the elements. According to our supplier, scratches and scrapes do not impact the overall effectiveness of the solar panel. However, we still would like to add this protective, preventative measure. Additionally, some recipients have voiced that they do not like the solar panel visible as this encourages thieves.
Note: On October 1st, 2022, The HomeMore Project Delivered our first Makeshift Traveler to someone experiencing homelessness. It is through the distribution and connection built with the people we serve that we have made these new enhancements to the next purchase order of our Makeshift Travelers. If you have any questions or additional enhancements that we can make, please let us know!
