If there are limitations, our top priority from this list is sutures, followed by pizza (though all items are important). For your information, there is an item that we need (IV catheters) but did not include on this form because we are still securing feasible vendor options; we were hoping to use $200 from our Outside Revenue (listed in the additional funding section) for this purpose.
