Donations Needed for the School Health Room

We would love a few donations for the Health Room this year.

1)      Many kids come and need a new shirt or pair of pants due to bloody noses, injuries, etc. and we could really use any used clothes that you might be donating to charity – pants, shirts, socks or sweatshirts.

2)      Also, we often get kids coming in who are lightheaded or haven’t eaten breakfast or lunch.  With the budget cuts, the cafeteria does not have extra food to give out, so we would also really appreciate some juice boxes, crackers, snack bars (preferably without nuts) to offer  the kids.  Donations can be dropped off at the office or at the Health Room.  Please contact Brienne Merritt,  the School Nurse, at  240-406-1571 or via email at brienne_b_merritt@mcpsmd.org if you have any questions.

Thank you!
