Children’s of Alabama nurses raise more than $800 for RMHCA

Nearly 2,000 nurses at Children’s of Alabama raised more than $800 for RMHCA during their 2017 Nurses Give Back Campaign.RMHCA and Children's of Alabama staff hold up a ceremonial check for the funds raised

The hospital celebrated the hard work, passion and dedication of its nurses during National Nurses Week May 8-12. The week ended with nurses enjoying a meal from various local food trucks and a portion of those sales were given to RMHCA. The nurses also collect pop tabs, which are recycled by RMHCA to help fund our operating budget. This year, the Hematology/Oncology Unit was crowned the winner of the nurses’ pop tab competition.

“Nurses are compassionate, dedicated and are committed to providing quality care to our patients and families. We want [the families’] experience during such a vulnerable time to be one of positive memories,” Laura Needham, who serves as Director of Nursing for Cardiovascular Services and helps lead the give back campaign.

“The nurses at Children’s enjoy participating in the annual Nurses Give Back Campaign because of the shared vision we have with Ronald McDonald House. This act of giving exemplifies what nursing is all about: a caring, giving profession,” she added.

Children’s of Alabama nurses have raised more than $11,000 for RMHCA since 2008. We are so grateful to partner with these amazing health care providers and thank them for their efforts!
