Adopt-a-School for the Holidays

AMSN Chapter #317 partnered with NMH's Adopt-a-School program at Jenner Academy in Cabrini-Green for the 2nd year in a row.  Our chapter adopted six 13-year-old boys and provided them with new winter coats.  Donations were collected through December 12 and will be delivered to Jenner on December 15.  Through the Adopt-a-School program, NMH employees give clothing, toys, and monetary gifts to children at Jenner ages 4-14 (grades pre-K to 8th grade).  Every year, the NMH family (including AMSN and its member nurses) donates back-to-school supplies in August and holiday gifts and clothing to kids in December.  Over the last 27 years, 11,400 children have been touched by the generosity of Northwestern employees!  We're proud to participate in this holiday tradition!  Thank you to everyone who donated!
