The Dolan Family Health Center held its 12th annual school supply drive on August 25, providing backpacks and school supplies to 180 children who are patients at the health center. Funds for the drive are raised by employees at the health center and donations were provided by Astoria Bank, BAE Systems, the Meadowbrook Women’s Initiative, Park Shore Country Day Camp and individual donors.
“Seeing the young student’s faces as they leave the building wearing their new backpacks bursting with school supplies is incredibly rewarding for all the staff that put so much time an energy into this event” said Joseph T. Volavka, PT, senior administrative director of the Dolan Family Health Center. “We deeply appreciate the generosity and hard work of our staff as well as the support from local community donors who made this possible.”
