The Lynbrook High School Key Club recently presented a trauma kit to school nurses thanks to their $1,000 donation to the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Center Foundation.
In October, the Key Club hosted their “Double Good Popcorn Fundraiser,” during which they collected donations to be made towards multiple organizations. Of the funds collected, $1,000 went towards the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Center. For their donation, the organization promised to donate a trauma kit in return.
On Dec. 16, the trauma kit, which includes a first aid kit and other medical emergency supplies, finally arrived. The Key Club gathered to gift the kit to the school’s beloved nurses, Mrs. O’Brien and Ms. Hetrick. “We are so ecstatic to finally have this kit,” the nurses said. “We cannot thank the KPTC and our Key Club enough.”
“This club continues to amaze me,” Key Club supervisor Dr. Benedict Tieniber said. “There’s nothing they can’t do.”
The LHS Key Club would like to thank the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Center Foundation for collaborating to make this special gift possible.
