Vermont Tech Nursing Students Sponsor Food Drive for Drop-In Center


March 21, 2013 The Chi Chapter of Alpha Delta Nu at Vermont Technical College, an honor society for second-year nursing students, is hosting a Food Drive to Benefit the Drop-In Center in Brattleboro from April 1-15. The Drop-In Center is a day center, community food shelf and provider of support services for those in need in the Brattleboro area. The center is in critical need of the following items:
Canned vegetables
Canned fruits
Diapers
Toothpaste
Deodorant
Feminine hygiene products


No donation is too small and monetary donations are always welcome. Checks can be made payable to the Drop-In Center. Donations may be dropped off at the Vermont Technical College Brattleboro/Thompson Campus, 11 University Way, Brattleboro, VT (the main barn building on the VABEC campus).


Alpha Delta Nu is a nursing academic honor society established in 1984 by the National Organization for Associate Degree Nursing (N-OADN), in order to promote scholarship and academic excellence in the profession of nursing.


The Thompson School for Practical Nurses is the oldest continuously operating school for practical nurse education in the United States, which opened in 1907. It became part of the Vermont Technical College system in 1994 and continues to provide state of the art education in the field of nursing.
