Nurses head up drive to help RHM, Main Street Mission

SALISBURY — Nurses from Rowan Regional Medical Center are recognizing National Nurses Week with a donation drive for Rowan Helping Ministries in Salisbury and Main Street Mission in China Grove.
Each nursing unit of the hospital is collecting food and other items throughout Nurses Week, which runs through Saturday, with the goal of a generous donation to help members of the community.
“Nursing is a lifelong commitment to serving our community and we want to honor the nursing mission with donations and support to those in need,” Paige Banish, chairwoman of the Nurses Coordinating Council at Rowan Regional, said in a press release.
Both Rowan Helping Ministries and Main Street Mission need the following items:
Canned fruit; canned meats; boxed mashed potatoes; mac and cheese; peanut butter; razors; flip flops (all sizes); jelly; can pastas; Ramen noodles; soap; cereal; spaghetti and sauce.
In addition to the donation drive, Rowan Regional nurses will celebrate with a variety of activities this week including the annual Tammy Bernhardt Nursing Excellence award ceremony, an award given to a nurse for excellence in the nursing profession in honor of Tammy Bernhardt, a former Rowan Regional nurse who passed away in 1998.
Every year, National Nurses Week focuses attention on the ways America’s 3.1 million registered nurses work to save lives and to improve the health of millions of individuals. This year’s theme is, “Nurses: Advocating, Leading, Caring.”
