I participated in a great event at the Community Nurse Health Center in LaGrange, Illinois. Community Nurse serves as a community healthcare center for residents of the western suburbs of Chicago. They focus on providing healthcare for those who have limited access to care. Community Nurse has been providing health and dental care to low income and uninsured residents for the past 90 years.

They have a Secret Santa event they do every year to provide Christmas toys, outfits, books and school supplies for their pediatric patients. Community Nurse works with supportive businesses, organizations and individuals in the community for their donated time, in-kind gifts and monetary contributions.

I had the privilege of helping families carry the Christmas gifts to their cars. It was a lot of fun and a very rewarding way to spend the afternoon.
