Student Nurses Association Drive to Support Our Troops

The Student Nurses Association with the help of Bonnie and Jim Petrosino, whose son-in-law is currently in Baghdad, are collecting donations to support our troops in Baghdad.  We would like the participation of the entire MCC family.  Each Department Head/Chairperson has received directions to help us collect donations (designated items/money). Please return the donations to Jenny Lorenz, Nursing Department Secretary, Building 8-312 or Luci Morrill, Business Administration Secretary, Building 5-510.  Money donations would be used to buy additional items and pay for postage (approximately $9/box shipping cost).  Items should be dropped off to either department listed.  Please see the suggested list for donations that will survive in a high temperature environment.  Turn in all donations by Wednesday, May 14.

Once the donations are shipped to Baghdad, Sergeant Shawn Saunders, son-in-law of Bonnie and Jim Petrosino, will distribute them to his fellow servicemen and service women. 

We thank you for your contributions and we hope you have a happy, healthy summer.
