After a month of collecting donations of school supplies, the Medicine Leadership team recently spent three hours sorting through and preparing them for students at Southern Middle School in Roxboro. 

Megan O'Connor, nurse manager for MPCU, led the event and is currently working with the school to arrange a day where the supplies can be delivered. While at the school, nurses will discuss with students what it's like to be a nurse. 

Each unit in the Medicine Service Line (8BT, 6BT, 6West, MICU, MPCU, and 3West) created unique donation boxes. Donations included everything from typical school supplies (e.g., pencils, pens, paper, binders, erasers, etc.) to snacks.
