HSHS St. Francis Hospital colleagues recently donated school supplies for the children of the hospital’s St. Clare Center food pantry. Annually, in anticipation of students returning to school, the hospital’s colleagues are invited to donate supplies to those who are in need. Colleagues contributed backpacks, some filled by members of their department, while others individually contributed a variety of school supplies. In total, the collection netted a van full of school supplies. 

"We are most grateful to our colleagues for their continued support of our food pantry clients and their children. Every child deserves the proper supplies to begin a new school year, and we are so thankful for their help in this special and important manner," said Paula Endress, director of philanthropy.
