The University of South Alabama Physicians Group Department of Radiology recently held a school supply drive benefiting students at the Southwest Alabama Regional School for the Deaf and Blind, delivering $1,000 worth of supplies on Aug. 11, 2017.
Throughout the summer, several radiologic technologists at the Strada Patient Care Center collected school supplies and art materials to donate to the school. “We interact with all types of children and adults with various needs and disabilities every day,” said Joey Baggett, supervisor of radiology and teleradiology at the Strada Patient Care Center. “Donating these supplies and materials was our way of giving back to the community.”
According to Baggett, the department decided to donate to the school because several radiologic technologists have bought handmade holiday cards from the students in the past. “We wanted to give them some of the materials to make more holiday cards this year, as well as other supplies that they can use throughout the school year.”
Overall, Baggett said this year’s donation was a success. “We would like to thank Ms. Mandy Sullivan, the principal of the school, and Mrs. Amy Hess, the mobility specialist, for allowing us to visit and be a part of their school,” he said. “Next year, we will include the entire Strada Patient Care Center in collecting donations.”
