Elementary School Donates 600 DVDS to SJCH's Grossman Burn Center

Donation The students of Almondale Elementary School have donated more than 600 DVDs to the Grossman Burn Center at San Joaquin Community Hospital. These DVDs will be used to brighten the days of patients admitted to the burn center. Each year Almondale Elementary School encourages their students to be actively involved in the community by choosing a local project for the students to support. When Darci Reed, program coordinator for San Joaquin Community Hospital's Grossman Burn Center, received a call from school officials that they'd been collecting DVDs for the burn center, she was excited. But nothing prepared her for the outburst of generosity. Through donations by the students, the school donated more than 600 DVDs. The DVDs will be used to brighten the days of patients admitted to the Grossman Burn Center.

In reaction to this donation, SJCH officials will be at the school assembly to formally thank the students and staff.
