ORANGE CITY, Fla., February 9, 2018 On Jan. 31, AdventHealth Fish Memorial donated nearly $5,500 worth of clinic supplies to 23 schools in western Volusia County.
The donation provided a wide variety of supplies to local elementary, middle and high schools, including gloves, bandages, tongue depressors and hand sanitizer.
Kids shouldn't have to worry about being sick in school, said Rob Deininger, AdventHealth Fish Memorial CEO. When kids are healthy, they can be more active and engaged in the classroom. We hope this donation make a positive impact on the lives of students.
