Stay Tuned for the Nurses’ Purse Raffle
Coming in October!
Last year, CCFoPH raised $12,700 for the Nurses’ Purse fund to assist with needs not covered by governmental programs. Here are some ways that these families have been helped:
• Clothing—winter coats and shoes
• Infant care – baby wipes / diapers; emergency specialty formulas; car seats
• Flu shots / medical bills for uninsured families
• Help with a down payment to obtain housing / payment of electric bill
• Help obtaining birth certificates
