Auxiliary Initiatives 2021

This year was our 5th annual Community & Back-To-School Wellness Event. We decided to play it safe and held a "Grab and Go" event while also offering pediatric appointments. It was an amazing turnout, distributing 500 pre-assembled backpacks containing school supplies, hand sanitizer and PPE masks for the children in the community.

Thank you to all who supported our "Buy a Backpack" for $15 campaign, we couldn't have done it without you! Below are some photos from the day of the event.
