Owens Findlay-area Campus Nursing Students Reach Out to Hospital Children With Toy Drive, Dec. 2-8

FINDLAY - The Owens Community College Findlay-area Campus Student Nursing Association is working to spread holiday cheer throughout the surrounding communities by hosting its first-ever Toy Drive benefiting children staying in local hospitals. The organization is currently accepting donations of toys from December 2-8.

"We really wanted to find a volunteer project that allowed us to give back to the community in a very meaningful way," said Angie Klausing, Owens president of the Findlay-area Campus Student Nursing Association. "The charitable donations will make a world of difference for those children who must spend their holiday in the hospital."

Klausing added, "Many of the Owens nursing students conduct their clinical work in these hospitals. This allows us to show our appreciation for that and to make a significant contribution to the patients."

Donations can be dropped off on the College's Findlay-area Campus at collection points in the Nursing Lab or the Commons. On December 15, the Student Nursing Association will wrap the donated toys and distribute them as gifts to children in the Blanchard Valley Regional Health Center, Wood County Hospital, Lima Memorial Hospital and Fremont Memorial Hospital.

The Owens Student Nursing Association has a rich and storied history, serving as one of the longest active student organizations at the College. In 2005, Owens expanded its student activities opportunities to include a new Findlay-area Campus chapter of the Student Nursing Association. The organization was created for Findlay-area Campus nursing and pre-nursing students with the overall mission of providing avenues for individuals to engage in community service activities, as well as to serve as a support network for nursing students. There are currently 20 nursing students participating in the Findlay-area Campus chapter.
