Tri-Cities S2 student Christina Babcock Bell organized a collection for the Tri-Cities Union Gospel Mission medical mission. She created a competition between clinical groups for all semesters and faculty to see who could collect the most items. Christina was extremely organized and provided lists of items that were needed at the mission. One of the J1 sections won and will receive lunch. An S2 group came in 2nd and won a platter of cookies. Susan Campbell of Faith Community Nurses who helps head up the Wednesday clinic at the mission said this was probably the best donation they have ever received. Nice work Christina and all those who donated!
