The Salvation Army has recognized Western Nevada Collegeâ€™s Nursing faculty and students for their contributions in making the Christmas holidays better for needy families.
They work to provide Christmas gifts and food to the Salvation Armyâ€™s Holiday, Toy and Table Top Kettle programs.
â€œEvery year, the National Student Nurses Association WNC Chapter does a community service fundraiser with the Salvation Army church of Carson City,â€ said Nursing Professor Deborah Ingraffia-Strong.
The department sets up an angel tree in the Cedar Building that includes tags with the Christmas wishes of local children. Generous students, college faculty and staff, and the general public remove the tags and purchase the desired gifts for the children.
The Salvation Army thanked the Nursing Program saying, in part: â€œThank you for your help to make this holiday season a little brighter and better for them and their loved ones. You helped make this possible!â€
