The 11th annual hygiene drive to support the H.E.L.P. program in Lincoln County is complete. The Oregon Coast Student Nurse Organization over three days collected approximately 1500lbs of hygiene supplies for Lincoln County students.
The student nurse group was supported by Bi-Mart Lincoln City, Fred Meyer Newport and Walmart Newport. The community members of Lincoln County were very generous with the supplies and over $800 in cash donations to purchase supplies to help students and families in need of a little help.
Thank you to all who participated at the collection sites, on-campus to separate and box supplies, and the dedication of the HELP staff who have a “round up” to collect the supplies and distribute them amongst the centers.
To a successful year!
