Gina Medefindt from Western Carolina University's DPT Program organized a blanket donation at Western Carolina University and South Western Community College. AWAKE will be able to give these blankets to children to use and keep during their child medical exam. Instead of providing the children with traditional paper sheets in the exam room, AWAKE allows children to pick their own fuzzy blanket. We are so appreciative of this donation and the support in making our children feel comfortable.
Thank you to the Alpha Kappa Alpha organization at Western Carolina University for their generous donation to AWAKE. Alpha Kappa Alpha donated food gift cards to AWAKE. This enables us to be able provide our families with food while they are here. AWAKE strives to make sure every child and family feels comfortable when they are here and providing a warm meal is one way we do that. We appreciate the thoughtfulness of this donation by Alpha Kappa Alpha.
