Nurses at Twin Cities collect, donate school supplies for underprivileged children
– For the past eight years, nurses and staff at Twin Cities Community Hospital have collected back to school supplies and backpacks for underprivileged children in North San Luis Obispo County.
Spearheaded by Registered Nurse Cyndi Allan, employees collaborated this year to fill 64 backpacks full of school supplies which were donated to the North County Women’s Shelter, ECHO Homeless Shelter in Atascadero and 40 children referred by San Luis Obispo County Department of Children’s Services.
Participating departments included all of the nursing units: Radiology, Laboratory, Emergency Department, Administration, Medical Records and more.
In the past eight years Twin Cities has donated more than 700 backpacks during this annual event.
