MPH Community Donates More Than 5,000 Needed Items
to Wipe Out, Sock, and Can the Pandemic!
One healthy way our community has worked through the challenges of the pandemic is by reaching beyond ourselves to offer a helping hand to others. The Onondaga County Health Department has helped keep our community healthy by providing regular, on-campus COVID-19 testing, free of charge. Our MPH4MPH Club members have invited our community to “pay it forward” by participating in testing-day drives to collect needed items for our neighbors. To date, we have donated more than 5,000 needed items to the Food Bank of Central New York, the Samaritan Center, and – this past Monday – the Ronald McDonald House. Exercising our core value of kindness benefits the health and well-being of the giver as well as the receiver of kindness. Thank you for your kindness!
