Children’s hospital gives free medical supplies to local schools

In an effort to help schools alleviate the stress on school budgets, the Children’s Hospital of Georgia partnered with Huddle Inc.’s Make It Better program to provide 23 local elementary schools with medical supplies.

Huddle Inc. works with health-conscious organizations to offer medical supplies to the community and their work with CHOG allowed the hospital to give schools items such as band-aids, emergency magnets, hand sanitizers, hot/cold packets, and coloring pages.

Many of the students and school nurses expressed  their appreciation by sending thank you letters and coloring book pictures to CHOG. Click the link below to see those images.

CHOG and Huddle, Inc. will continue their work this fall by giving schools take-home folders containing health tips and information about the hospital.
