The Taylorville Kiwanis Club and Hospital Sisters Health System
(HSHS) Medical group office staff in Taylorville teamed up to collect and donate supplies to be used for students in the coming school year.
The project was initiated by the HSHS Taylorville staff that wanted to provide some assistance to teachers and nurses. The items collected included tissues, disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer, items that are normally purchased out of pocket by the teaching staff.
Kiwanian Martin Vota was made aware of the effort and contacted HSHS, offering support from the Taylorville club. HSHS sought assistance with distribution of the items collected by their employees. When club members learned the effort was to
assist the local schools and children, they also donated items to the cause.
Taylorville Elementary School nurses gratefully accepted the supplies, expressing their appreciation for the support that Kiwanis and HSHS has for the community. More projects are in the works partnering these two groups.
