Many of you in the upper half of the state may be looking for a tangible way to help your fellow school nurses devastated by this storm. We have just begun receiving preliminary reports of damage to schools and clinics as well as personal loss to some of our members. We have no doubt that the damage reports will begin pouring in. We have begun a specific campaign to raise donations that can we can get to our nurses quickly through GoFundMe. Any amount is very much appreciated and will enable us to help more nurses than we could help alone. We are humbled and tremendously grateful to be a part of such a caring specialty.
